My fifth State of the City Address was an opportunity to highlight our progress on increasing exports to Mexico, growing the city’s bioscience and innovation sectors and creating thousands of high-paying jobs. The results of our collective efforts show that Phoenix is truly leading the way on Arizona’s economic recovery.
Today, our city is stronger than ever before. Through wise investments and by working together, not only have we made our city strong, but we are making our state stronger.
We’ve done this by charting a bold course to create an economy focused on exports and rooted in innovation. And our efforts are paying off.
