Delaware Governor's Message
Home of tax-free shopping, five-star beaches, and acres of preserved natural beauty, Delaware has proven time and again that we are the “right size, right place” for business — from financial services, life sciences and aerospace to tech firms and agribusinesses — we work hard to help enterprises of all kinds develop and thrive. Located in the heart of the Northeast Corridor, Delaware offers one of the best tax climates and a highly educated workforce. Often referred to as the “Corporate Capital of the World,” we are dedicated to cultivating a business-friendly environment that encourages ingenuity and innovation. In fact, Delaware’s largest city, Wilmington, was recently named one of the top five cities in the nation outside of Silicon Valley to launch a start-up by Datafox. The shifting business landscape demands that we be adaptive and flexible to remain competitive in a global market; keeping current with the latest technologies is essential. Just this past year, the Delaware Economic Development Office launched a new, user-friendly website and an interactive site locator that provides easy access to database of available properties, as well as information on our labor market, infrastructure, demographics and more. Please take a moment to visit www.dedo.delaware.gov and check out the site locator by clicking “Relocate/Expand Here” at the top of the page. Delaware is a place for businesses of all sizes to grow and build a future. I would like to extend my best wishes to the commercial real estate professionals of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland and Delaware. I look forward to your continued success and to working with you to grow our nation’s economies.
Sincerely, Jack A. Markell, Governor
