The 2011 Brief Economic Facts and the Maryland Financing and Incentive Resources are available online at www.choosemaryland.org, at local economic development agencies and in print form by calling 410-767-6300.
“DBED is continuing to give Maryland businesses the tools they need to start or expand and make good business decisions,” said DBED Secretary Christian S. Johansson. “Through these publications, and others on our website, we are ensuring that our businesses community is informed and connected to the resources critical to growing and adding jobs.”
Brief Economic Facts, which have been published annually since 1970, provides a snapshot of each jurisdiction’s economy, infrastructure and major employers, key information that is used by economic development officials to attract businesses to Maryland, as well as assist businesses looking to expand within the State. The data is compiled from federal and other State agencies, as well as from local economic development offices, which are partnering with DBED on this effort.
