Accelerate Alabama is a strategic plan developed January 2012 to provide direction for economic development in the state for
at least the next three years. Eleven industry clusters were identified as areas of focus for recruitment, retention, and renewal
in the state. As a partner agency, the Alabama Department of Labor provides information to support statewide economic development efforts.
As a result, The Labor Market Information Division developed a presentation on each industry cluster which provides both trends and the
most recent data to assist with the efforts of this initiative. For more information on the Accelerate Alabama plan visit http://www.madeinalabama.com/
