Our Partners in Growing the Economy Statewide
The Department of Commerce team of economic development experts works closely with our local and regional partners to coordinate recruitments, promote Washington State, respond to site selector requests for buildable sites and expand and deepen trade and economic relationships worldwide.
Associate Development Organizations
Washington State is composed of 39 counties, each one represented by an Associate Economic Development (ADO) organization that furthers the county’s or region’s economic development goals. These ADOs are funded in part by the Department of Commerce and their performance and expertise is critical to our goal of growing the economy and building communities statewide.
