VEDP Hits the Mark

June 30 marked the close of fiscal year 2016 for VEDP, and  we have reason to celebrate. The Partnership assisted with 191 projects from July 1, 2015, to June 30, 2016, surpassing two of our three goals.

VEDP came in on target for our announced capital investment goal—$2.7 billion—and surpassed our announced jobs goal by 142 percent, with companies announcing the intent to create more than 18,000 new jobs in the Commonwealth. While we missed our goal for new active projects by just 8 percent, we still feel we have accomplished much this year.
