No denying it, these are tough times all around. In today's uncertain economic environment, some businesses are struggling simply to survive, and thoughts of relocation and/or expansion may be on the back burner for many. But here in Florida, your economic well-being is top of mind. There's a new attitude in Tallahassee, where our leaders have made economic development and job creation their No. 1 priority.

This issue of Business Florida zeroes in on the "Top 5 Reasons To Do Business in Florida," and heading up that list is our exceptional business climate. On these pages, you'll learn about the changes under way to streamline the economic development process in Florida. And you'll learn about the unique assets each region of our state has to offer. Also, in the special report titled Research Florida you'll read about Florida researchers who are on the cutting-edge of discoveries in medicine, technology, agriculture, energy, engineering and more.

Exciting things are happening in the Sunshine State. I encourage you to read about the opportunities available to your business in Florida, then join us and share the success.
