As the world moves forward from the disruption and fundamental change of Covid-19, New Hampshire’s Economic Recovery and Expansion Strategy (ERES) is the framework for the state’s long-term economic success, supported by the shared goals and positive outcomes of collaborative partners. The ERES strategy builds and strengthens a resilient economy, while protecting the business advantages that sets the state apart from the rest of the Northeast and beyond.

New Hampshire is a place where its businesses grow, thrive, and prosper in a climate that encourages them to succeed. The taxes they don’t have to pay is money they invest – in their facilities and their workforce.

The Department of Business and Economic Affairs (BEA) is committed to fostering that success. BEA is a resource for businesses of all sizes and sectors, from family-owned companies to multi-national corporations, that can meet their goals in a variety of ways, from government contracting and international trade, to workforce development, financing and more.

BEA resources include:
  • The Office of International Commerce works with businesses to help them discover, and expand into, global markets. Exporting is worth more than $5 billion in New Hampshire across key sectors of the economy.
  • The New Hampshire APEX Accelerator helps companies find, bid on, and win, government contracts, and navigate the process to completion.
  • The Office of Workforce Opportunity connects businesses with a workforce ready to meet the demand and conquer the competition for their goods and services.
  • The Division of Economic Development’s business resource specialists and business development team works with companies on their plans to retain employees, expand, or relocate their businesses to New Hampshire.
  • The Division of Travel and Tourism Development offers resources and expertise to businesses within the hospitality industry.
