Developing my Community
For ECBC, community economic development (CED) is about engaging and empowering communities to take control of their destiny by pursuing opportunities leading to sustainable economic development.
Investments in communities are necessary to strengthen and enhance their economic foundation and to ensure they are attractive places to live and invest. In order to achieve this, community initiatives must encourage and support the attraction of leveraged investment, the creation of sustainable wealth, the development of a competitive advantage and the enhancement of quality of life.
