Washington, D.C.—The Washington, D.C. Marketing Center announces the release of the DC Business Connections 2003 Annual Report.

This report takes the pulse of the District’s corporate community and examines their attitudes, opinions, needs and much more as it relates to operating a business in D.C.

DC Business Connections (DCBC) Corporate Relations Specialists visited more than 1,400 companies over the past three years. Businesses were asked questions on doing business in the District, the city’s business climate, potential site locations, business support needs, and more. The results of those 1,400 visits can be found in the 2003 Annual Report.

Key findings include most notable improvements, ongoing concerns and issues, and needed information and resources. The data contained in the report will enable the DC Marketing Center to provide the city’s policy makers with useful information to refine policies and programs in order to make the District more business friendly. Additionally, the 2003 Annual Report highlights the progress that has been made by the DC Business Connections program in its three years of service.

DCBC is a program of the Washington, DC Marketing Center launched by Mayor Anthony Williams and designed to facilitate communication between the D.C. business community and the District government. DCBC provides rapid responses to businesses’ concerns by using a partner network of more than 30 government agencies and business organizations.
