Governor Colyer Announces New "Land in Kansas" Strategic Economic Development Initiative
Tuesday, October 23, 2018
Governor Jeff Colyer announced the launch of a new economic development initiative aimed at attracting investment and promoting business expansion in Kansas. Colyer was joined by Interim Secretary of Commerce Bob North, Secretary of Agriculture Jackie McClaskey, and other economic development professionals from across the state.
The new initiative titled “Land in Kansas” takes a comprehensive, multi-agency approach to economic growth. The key components of the plan include a new state marketing campaign, a top-down review of economic development programs in the state, and a pilot program to enable communities across the state to better target specific areas for economic growth.
Under the plan, several state agencies will each appoint an economic development liaison who will serve as the primary contact for economic development projects.
