The Partnership has positioned the County for regional and national corporate development in our promotional activities. We have welcomed investments from Wal-Mart, Kohl’s, Home Depot, Ideal Snacks, Crystal Run Healthcare and many others. Bethel Woods Center for the Arts is considered local investment driven, yet its investment and impact is equal to or betters large corporate attraction projects. The Partnership will look to identify and assist ancillary businesses now and in the future as we continue to use the strength of the region and work closely with economic development partners at home and in the region to market our comparative advantages and continue to make the case for external investment.
The Partnership is currently focused on attracting businesses that will expand and enhance the existing base of tourism, agriculture, and green development industry clusters. Tourism continues to be a leading economic driver in Sullivan County, generating more than $290 million annually. Agriculture is the second largest industry in the County with 382 farms that collectively generate total annual revenue of $78 million. Green development remains a fast growing industry sector with a significant portion of stimulus monies dedicated to Green projects across the nation.
