In trying to build economic diversity, Wyoming targeting certain sectors

October 17, 2019

Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon recently announced that changes are coming to the state’s ENDOW initiative, a 20-year vision that was crafted under his predecessor, Gov. Matt Mead. As part of the coming changes, Gordon said the initiative will target certain industries (such as aerospace, defense and healthcare), be smaller in its scope, and incremental in its strategy. The governor said in a statement that while the vision of ENDOW will continue driving state economic diversification, efforts will now shift toward targeted implementation plans. With the 20-year strategy and action plans already submitted, the governor will no longer convene the executive council, but the ENDOW-initiated programs and committees will continue.

The governor said he will announce plans in the coming weeks on the next steps on economic development.
