Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam released the following statement today after the Florida Chamber Foundation announced that the state’s Gross Domestic Product surpassed $1 trillion for the first time in history:
“Getting Florida’s economy out of the ditch and back on track has long been one of our state’s top priorities, and today’s announcement that our economy surpassed $1 trillion is incredible news for all Floridians. This milestone is further evidence that the pro-business policies and priorities championed by Governor Scott, the Cabinet and the Legislature are working. Florida’s economy is on a roll, but complacency is not a strategy and we must continue to do all that we can to make the Florida’s economy as strong and resilient as possible.”
According to the Florida Chamber Foundation, Florida’s $1 trillion economy would rank as the 17th largest economy in the world.
