I am honored to serve as the Chairman of the Virginia Economic Development Partnership's Board of Directors.
Virginia's economy remains strong and is consistently ranked among the top states in the country for business. In addition to its pro-business environment, Virginia offers an exceptional transportation and utility infrastructure, strong education system, dynamic workforce, and strategic location. The Commonwealth's strong assets will continue to make it a desirable location for both international and domestic businesses seeking to expand or relocate.
Our team of experienced economic development professionals is committed to attracting jobs and investment to Virginia. The Partnership's world-class international trade program assists both new and experienced exporters in the Commonwealth with entering new international markets.
Through strategic partnerships with our local and regional economic development allies across the state, Virginia institutions of higher education, and economic engines such as the Virginia Port Authority, the Virginia Economic Development Partnership will continue to share the Commonwealth's great story with business leaders across the globe.
I look forward to working with our exceptional team and building on Virginia's economic momentum.
John F. Malbon
Chairman of the Board
