Full report in PDF format


  • The Legislature should continue to fund the International Trade and Economic Development Board's programs and activities.
  • The board reported that its international trade programs exceeded its standards for Fiscal Year 1997-98, but it expects deteriorating economic conditions in Latin America and Asia to limit its ability to match these results in Fiscal Year 1998-99.
  • The board also reported that it exceeded its standards for creating jobs in targeted industries, but most of these results occurred in urban areas where the board's direct assistance may be less necessary. The board has not implemented significant strategies for enhancing economic development in rural areas and distressed urban areas.
