Dear Texas Economic Development Stakeholders,
As we ease into the summer months, the Texas economy continues its fast track to recovery. Unemployment has dipped to 6.7%, and we have added back more than 1 million jobs of the 1.5 million lost due to the pandemic. We also continue to see a significant increase in the number of businesses interested in Texas due to our strong economy, reasonable regulatory climate and the second largest workforce in the nation. There are no signs of business investment activity slowing, which means more jobs and capital investment for our state and local economies.
I hope you enjoy this month’s new and improved Texas Business Bulletin, with a new look and increased mobile optimization. In this newsletter, you will get to meet our newest team members, discover some of our recently published industry reports and read about the many project announcements over the past month. Be sure to visit our website and follow us on social media to receive the most up-to-date information and announcements from our office. Thanks for your continued partnership and for all that you do for the Lone Star State!
— Adriana Cruz, Executive Director
