For Nevada, Economic diversification does not mean abandoning our traditional sectors of tourism, mining, and agriculture. Rather, other industries will expand to establish a broader economic foundation.
Our state strategic plan identified more than 30 opportunities and categorized them across seven sectors. It is within these opportunities that Nevada can realize its potential for producing high-quality jobs.
The state marshals resources to assist regions in the development and execution of sector-specific and cross-sector strategies toward capitalizing on targeted opportunities, especially through innovation.
A variety of opportunities is the linchpin for economic diversification in Nevada. GOED’s industry specialists work closely with the RDAs and the private sector as they maximize sector development.
