The new entity – Orlando Economic Partnership – is a not-for-profit, public/private partnership encompassing Central Florida's seven counties – Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Polk, Seminole and Volusia – as well as the City of Orlando.

To provide the region with a durable competitive advantage in global competition for quality jobs, economic growth, broad-based prosperity and a sustainable quality of life.

The organization’s top priorities include creating high-wage, high-value jobs, expanding Central Florida’s global reach and competitiveness, supporting and enhancing educational/skills preparedness in the talent pipeline, strengthening advocacy for improved infrastructure and community resources, and creating an enviable quality of life that is broad-based and sustainable.
