Work as a region to attract top level jobs, talent, and experiences
The Northeast Tennessee Regional Economic Partnership provides a united regional approach to economic development, jointly funded by the private and public sectors to market, speak, and act with one voice, proactively creating jobs, and building regional prosperity.
The plan focuses on business retention and expansion, attraction of new business, workforce development with additional effort dedicated to creating shovel ready sites, and adding enhanced stakeholder communications.
This strategic viewpoint deploys an approach to create collaboration so that Washington, Carter, and Unicoi Counties (the Johnson City Metro) will expand unimpeded by city or county borders, thus, encouraging new businesses to locate in the region.
True prosperity doesn’t happen in isolation. It takes partnership across different borders and diverse industries. It takes promotion to bring the world to our doorstep. And it takes pride, an abiding appreciation for the simple fact that we live in one of the nation’s most remarkable success stories.
The mission of the Northeast Tennessee Regional Economic Partnership is to enhance job growth and increase the tax base by engaging business leaders through collaboration with existing businesses to expand, build their supply chains, actively recruit new employers in targeted sectors, and attract educated talent.
