Martin Romitti, Senior Vice President at CREC, spoke about the highly competitive landscape for state and regional economic development at the South Dakota Governor’s Economic Development Conference held in Sioux Falls on April 16-17, 2013. In particular, Dr. Romitti discussed trends in economic development expenditures and the growing number of tax and non-tax programs being initiated by states to incentivize businesses and produce job growth. CREC maintains national databases on both state economic development program expenditures and tax and non-tax incentive programs. The center also recently completed a survey of state incentive managers to identify program trends.
