Economic development administration officials are encouraging businesses to focus on building businesses that generate more jobs.
In their latest guide, the agency said they are working with businesses to develop a plan for businesses to create and grow new businesses.
“I would like to emphasize that it is not an investment, it is an investment in the economy,” said Dan Gannon, the economic development administrator.
“It is a process to create jobs and build the economic infrastructure that will support that economy.”
He said companies that do not follow this advice will be penalized by the agency.
“You are putting a stake in the ground,” Gannon said.
“That is a major reason for the growth of this economy, and the reason why people want to work in this economy.”
The economic development administration is also working with small businesses to make them more self-sufficient.
Businesses can apply for financial assistance through the state.
The agency is also helping businesses with hiring and training.
In some cases, the state will pay for the training, and some businesses will even hire part-time workers.
The economic growth administration has also established a program to train people in the new technologies of online advertising and social media marketing.
And in recent months, the administration has been developing a pilot program to provide loans to small businesses that are not located in the state’s major metropolitan areas.
The administration said the loans will help them expand into new areas and provide additional jobs.
Business owners who can’t qualify for the loans may also be eligible for financial help through a program that will help with the costs of closing their businesses and creating new jobs.
The government also is providing more than $6 billion in grants to help companies that are looking to expand their operations in Florida.
The federal government also provides more than two-thirds of the state budget and more than half of the federal aid.
