DC Mayor Vincent C. Gray Focusing Resources on Economic Development

Washington, DC Mayor Vincent C. Gray and Deputy Mayor Victor L. Hoskins announced Wednesday that they were delivering on one of the Mayor's key promises: initiating the development of a broad Five-Year Economic Development Strategy for the District, to be completed by the fall.

The initiative will involve leaders of seven major industry sectors within the District and surrounding area, and area graduate students from Howard University, American University, Georgetown University and The George Washington University will collect data that will then be used in planning the strategy. The effort will provide a roadmap for the District's economic-development efforts, particularly in the areas of business development and job creation.
