Empire State Development's 2017 Annual Report: Spotlight on a Year of NYS Growth



ESD’s first annual report, published earlier this month, is a comprehensive look at all we have done–as an agency and as the state of New York—in 2017.

New York’s strengthening economy reflects a strategic approach to economic development building on downtown revitalization, innovation, workforce development, and incentivizing business investment and job creation.

The report features 2017 highlights from ESD divisions and initiatives—from signature infrastructure projects and innovation to MWBE goals and Upstate’s ongoing transformation.
