Working group on Delaware Economic Development Office to meet Friday
The Delaware Economic Development Working Group, which was established by Gov. Carney through an executive order, is holding its first meeting this Friday at the Delaware Technical & Community College in Wilmington.
The group’s mandate is to produce a series of recommendations for the governor on how to overhaul the Delaware Economic Development Office (DEDO), which handles business incentive programs and other state economic policies.
Gov. Carney appointed a mix of business leaders, elected officials and heads of institutions to the group.
The agenda for the meeting includes a rundown of DEDO’s current programs and funding, as well as a discussion about the possibility of leveraging more public private partnerships.
The meeting begins at 1:00 PM. The agenda does call for public comment period, but that could be subject to change.
