Attracting and retaining a healthy mix of business is vital for the prosperity of our community and its residents. The City of Duluth is fortunate to have DEDA as a dedicated, professional partner that effectively uses all available tools and resources to advance long-term economic growth.

DEDA is not alone in its commitment to expand economic prosperity. The Duluth Prosperity Agenda, developed under the leadership of Mayor Don Ness, focuses on improving Duluth's business climate, growing quality jobs, promoting a skilled workforce, and raising the income levels and quality of life for residents. It aims to improve the life of every resident by identifying and addressing issues that impact community health, vitality, and sustained prosperity.

A lot has been accomplished, but more remains to be done. Duluth is open for business with DEDA as a partner.
