New Mexico Economic Development Department Statewide Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy

As part of a grant from the Economic Development Administration, EDD is embarking on an initiative to create a statewide economic development plan which will focus on immediate COVID-19 recovery and 5 and 20 year strategies. The plan will provide a regional SWOT analysis for developing targeted sectors identified as high impact within the state. EDD is working with an independent research institute to collect data and develop the plan.  The effort is collaborative and will include numerous state agencies: IAD, EMNRD, DWS as well as the regional COGs and local economic development organizations.

The plan is projected to be completed by September 2021.

Economic Development stakeholders are encouraged to provide input. To be involved, please reach out to your local economic development organization, regional COG Director or Felicia DePaula at
