Regional Competitiveness Report

The Tampa Bay Partnership, in collaboration with United Way Suncoast, the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay, and other business and philanthropic partners throughout the region, led the development of the Regional Competitiveness Report for Tampa Bay.

Published annually, this comprehensive research tool benchmarks the community against peer and aspirational markets nationwide, and provides an unbiased and contextual account of the economic performance, competitiveness and prosperity of the region.

The 2018 Regional Competitiveness Report was released in November 2017.
