The Department of Business New Brunswick drives New Brunswick’s economic development strategy through three key priorities:

* Aggressive investment attraction – We get the word out among international corporate leaders that New Brunswick is the place to be in business, focusing on knowledge-based industries, value-added natural resources, bio-technologies and advanced manufacturing.

* Business retention and expansion – We help traditional resource and manufacturing industries be more profitable by targeting emerging markets and improving energy efficiency and productivity.

* Cluster development – We build on our existing research communities and resource-based industries to create business clusters that focus on advanced learning, biosciences, health, energy, aerospace and defence and advanced manufacturing.
