Your Broward County Board of County Commissioners continues to work to better our local economy. Earlier this year, we approved a $500,000 incentive package with funding from the County, State and City to bring a Venezuelan pharmaceutical company to Tamarac. The new company, Unipharma, approved the plan with the help of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance
and is investing $50 million dollars into Broward, creating 100 jobs with an average a salary of about $50,000. This facility will be their new, international headquarters. The Tamarac location beat out other cities including Madrid, Spain; Bogota, Colombia; and Atlanta, Georgia.
Tourism is UP in Broward
It’s a “Sunny” forecast for Broward County! For 46 months in a row, hotel occupancy numbers have been up in Greater Fort Lauderdale. By the end of the year, experts predict that Broward County will have had 13 million visitors who spent $10 billion dollars in our local economy!
