The Alabama Association of Regional Councils and its 12 member Regional Councils developed a program to further enhance and expand their support for economic development throughout the state by creating the Alabama Consolidated Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy. The document recognizes the distinct economic assets of functional economic regions to more fully realize their respective competitive advantages, with a focus on four principles: global awareness, regional competitiveness, community livability, and a sustainable future. The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs and the Center for Business and Economic Research at the University of Alabama were important project partners.
