NEOTEC...a true public/private partnership
NEOTEC was established in 1996 through the visionary leadership of county officials in Columbiana, Mahoning, Portage, Stark, Summit and Trumbull counties. They collaborated to form the Joint Office of Economic Development (JOED), which today includes two additional member counties: Medina and Richland. NEOTEC works on behalf of the member counties to carry out the economic development initiatives of the JOED. Through NEOTEC, the JOED’s 8-county leadership remains committed to the goal of regional collaboration to improve economic opportunities in Northeast Ohio.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT The Northeast Ohio Trade & Economic Consortium (NEOTEC) is a multicounty regional economic development partnership that works collaboratively in the region with the goal of attracting capital investment and jobs to Northeast Ohio through the administration of Foreign-Trade Zones 40 and 181, by providing international trade assistance to promote international commerce, through the development of a world-class logistics system, and through the attraction of foreign direct investment.
