Governor’s GO-Biz Office starts promoting economic initative

Governor Brown will apparently be taking his economic development plan on the road. According to to a report in the Sacramento Business Journal, representatives of the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development, known as GO-Biz. will be on hand to describe their economic initiatives at an event sponsored by several Sacramento Business Associations:

“We’re excited to talk about these updates for economic development in the state,” GO-Biz director Kish Rajan said. “As we’ve seen lately, the Golden State’s economy has been coming back strong over the past year. But with (the governor’s initiative) we now have new, dynamic tools to increase that momentum and put our foot on the accelerator for economic development in California.”

A few months ago, Govornor Brown signed legislation that eliminated the state of California’s enterprise zone program and replaced it with new economic stimulus tools. Those programs include a manufacturing sales tax waiver, a hiring tax credit and recruitment incentives. The full plan can be found at this link.

As described on their website: “The Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) serves as California’s single point of contact for economic development and job creation efforts. GO-Biz offers a range of services to business owners including: attraction, retention and expansion services, site selection, permit streamlining, clearing of regulatory hurdles, small business assistance, international trade development, assistance with state government” To learn more about this office visit:
