Wash. Department of Commerce issues plan for organization

In November, Washington's Department of Commerce issued its report, Defining Commerce: Next Steps in our Mission to Grow and Improve Jobs in Washington, to Gov. Chris Gregoire and the Washington Legislature. The report defines the agency's mission as to "grow and improve jobs in Washington" and proposes two organizing options for the agency -- a smaller, focused organization, or an organization with more community capacity building. Policy recommendations in the report are based on recommendations in the Washington Economic Development Commission's February 2009 report, The Washington Innovation Economy. The Department of Commerce adopts the EDC report's vision statement: "Make Washington the most attractive, creative and fertile investment environment for innovation in the world as a means of achieving long-term global competitiveness, prosperity and economic opportunity for all the state's citizens."
