The very existence of the EDCMC is one of the many examples of a commitment to growing the local economy and attracting new industry and business to the community. A large part of our mission is to bring together the right mix of resources including government officials, utility engineers and the expertise of business leaders to encourage investment and support business growth. Our competitive incentive packages make Michigan City a strong and leading contender for business location and expansion decisions.
EDCMC works closely with the Indiana Economic Development Corporation, Northwest Indiana Forum, Site Selectors and realtors, partnering with them when dealing with potential new business clients. The State of Indiana continues to gain recognition for the economic development efforts being made across the state.

The State has earned Best Business Climate in the Midwest and 5th nationally (Chief Executive, 2013). Furthermore, Indiana has claim for the 2nd Most Competitive State in the nation (Site Selection, 2013).
