The Delaware Economic Development Working Group submitted a report to Gov. John Carney recommending a plan to implement a public-private partnership - the Delaware Pros- perity Partnership - that would restructure Delaware's economic development efforts. The nonprofit partnership, as recommended by the working group, would leverage private resources to enhance business recruitment, promote entrepre- neurship and innovation, support workforce development and provide market analysis on Dela- ware's economy. His first full day in office Jan. 18, Carney signed Execu- tive Order No. 1, creating the working group to recommend a plan for implementing a public-private partnership to improve Delaware's system of economic development. Carney is reviewing the working group's recommendations.

"It makes sense to ask the business sector to partner in those efforts. Thank you to the members of the working group for their attention to this important issue.
