Carson City, NV – Governor Brian Sandoval accompanied by Steve Hill, Director of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, released Nevada’s Plan for Excellence in Economic Development at 9 a.m. on February 7, 2012 at The University of Nevada, Reno.

The Plan, aimed at creating 50,000 jobs by the end of 2014, launches initiatives as well as outlines a strategy to encourage the creation, expansion and relocation of businesses, both small and large, in this State. The plan is a collaborative effort and, according to Sandoval, “state government, across all agencies, must work hand-in-glove with local governments, regional development organizations, and the private sector to bring our economy into alignment with the current reality and the emerging global environment.”

Targeted industries, which were initially identified by The Brookings/SRI Report include clean energy, health/medical services, aerospace and defense, tourism, gaming and entertainment, mining, materials and manufacturing, business IT ecosystems as well as logistics and operations. According to the report, “it is within these opportunities, and others that may be identified by the regions, that Nevada will realize its potential for producing high-quality jobs.”
