Target Sectors

North Louisiana Target Sectors

North Louisiana Economic Partnership developed a strategic plan, in partnership with TIP Strategies from Austin, Texas, to guide our economic develop strategies. The strategic plan considers the region's assets, employers, and talent pool and targets sectors with favorable growth prospects that are a "good fit" for North Louisiana. NLEP will focus recruitment efforts on two broad industry categories:

  • Advanced Manufacturing - capitalizing on the region's historic strengths, workforce, and assets
  • Professional Services & Information Technology - supporting the region's transition to a knowledge economy and reinforces our newer assets

Within these broad sectors are specific target niches that play to North Louisiana's strengths and competitive advantages.
