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/.
An overview of each Industry Cluster is provided below:
