Tennessee Economic Development Organizations Continue Focus

As Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development prepares to take a breather in its recruitment efforts of large industries (see story), local Tennessee economic development organizations such as Hickman County Economic & Community Development Association continue to work hard in our business retention and expansion programs as well as marketing Tennessee communities to attract retail and industrial site selection decision makers. Our focus is sustainable growing companies that are looking for a quality labor force with a strong rural work ethic.
