AEDC Designates Jonesboro as Competitive Community
The Arkansas Economic Development Commission (AEDC) and local officials recently announced that Jonesboro completed the Competitive Communities Initiative (CCI) evaluation that aims to ensure the city’s preparedness to successfully compete for jobs and investments.
The program is designed to identify ways a community can be more competitive with regard to their economic development organizational structure, their economic development funding, their workforce, and their product readiness.
As part of the initiative, Jonesboro and other communities that meet the standards of the initiative will be featured throughout AEDC marketing efforts. Competitive Communities in Arkansas must undergo a re-evaluation every two years to maintain their designation.
