Regional & Local Economic Development Strategies

In the current economic climate, economic development is high on the agendas of most public agencies. Strategies to create new jobs and to replace traditional industries have become the mission of local and regional development agencies. For over 20 years, CER has been engaged in developing strategies for restructuring, diversification, and job creation in areas experiencing high unemployment and loss of traditional industries.

CER helps to define new economic targets for such clients based on in-depth understanding of competitive strengths and advantages.
