Economic Development

Economic Development initiatives are managed through the Economic Development Committee, and conducted jointly through the Houston Chamber of Commerce and the District of Houston. The main efforts of the Economic Development arm of the District are to promote Houston as a business-friendly community which is investment ready, to attract new businesses, and to promote existing businesses to stay and grow.

In 2014, the District of Houston adopted an Economic Development Strategy to guide its economic development efforts and to prioritize activities of the Economic Development Committee. Jointly overseen by the District of Houston and the Chamber of Commerce, the Strategy states the five strategic priorities for Houston's economic development:

  • Business Retention & Expansion
  • Entrepreneurship Development
  • Expand Tourism Opportunities
  • Investment Attraction
  • Support and Facilitation
