Iowans embrace challenges. Innovation and a strong work ethic is deeply rooted in our culture, and we're not afraid to tackle global problems, whether that's sustainable feeding of the world or harnessing renewable energy to reduce our dependence on foreign oil.
Our public and private sectors are nimble and collaborate to elevate the skills and talent of the state's workers to meet the needs of the global economy. We understand our strengths and put economic development strategies in place to maximize on those assets. All of this effort is working to sustain a growing and diverse economy and raise the standard of living for all Iowans.
