Weekly Radio Address Friday, May 18, 2012
Hi, this is Governor Rick Scott.
Next week, I will be leading a business development mission to Spain. Along with a delegation of more than 60 Florida business leaders and economic development professionals, I will work to strengthen economic ties between Florida and Spain. The goal of our mission is twofold.
First, we will promote the 500th anniversary celebration of Spanish presence in Florida and further cement our cultural ties. Next, I will promote Florida as the ideal location for Spanish companies to do business.
Spain has been one of the fastest growing foreign investors in Florida in recent years. Well over 300 Spanish companies maintain operations in our state. Spain is also an important source of tourism to Florida. While in Spain, I will promote Florida as the world’s No. 1 tourist destination. By developing and maintaining relationships with key economic partners, we can ensure that Florida’s economy continues to grow.
