    The Florida Chamber Foundation's Florida Trade & Logistics 2030 Study Identifies Key Strategies and Recommendations to Inform Policy and Course of Action for Florida's Trade, Logistics, Export-Oriented Manufacturing, and Rural Economic Development
     
     
    “Purposely expanding manufacturing, logistics, trade and rural economic growth aligns with Governor DeSantis' continued leadership in this space, and will help grow Florida to the 10th largest global economy by 2030. We have a generational opportunity to get this right.”
     
    -Mark Wilson, President, Florida Chamber of Commerce and Foundation
     
     
     
     
     
     
    To an audience of 200 Florida infrastructure leaders, the Florida Chamber Foundation unveiled the long-anticipated Florida Trade & Logistics 2030 Study (TL2030), this morning, at the Florida Transportation, Growth & Infrastructure Solution Summit in Jacksonville. Informed by two prior studies in its series – the Florida Trade and Logistics Study 1.0 and Made for Trade: Florida Trade and Logistics Study 2.0 – this follow-up research analyzes emerging trends from the COVID-19 pandemic, and the opportunities and challenges facing Florida's trade, logistics, and manufacturing industries as they work to stay on pace with changes in the global economy and global supply chain.
     
    The framework of this study is built around the Florida Chamber Foundation's Florida 2030 Blueprint's Six Pillars. Some key strategies and recommendations include:
     
    • Reaffirm the statewide priority for trade, logistics and manufacturing
    • Establish a statewide, focused manufacturing initiative
    • Close essential workforce gaps and strengthen the talent pipeline
    • Continue to strengthen trade gateways and corridors
    • Establish a comprehensive site development program with emphasis on rural areas
    • Continue redesigning Florida’s economic development toolkit
    • Strategically leverage rural economic development to double the percentage of GDP from rural Florida
