Emerging and developing countries around the world desire U.S. products and services to support their improving quality of life. SI should leverage Illinois global trade-experience to expand SI import and exports by $1billion/year. It is the 4 th quarter in SI and time to get in the game!

Highly skilled and educated human resources will be the key to economic prosperity for the foreseeable future.
©2007 ViTAL Economy, Inc. 12 The Global Workforce Bind The quantity and quality of SIs workforce are the most important and immediate factors impacting economic growth, particularly given the shift from agriculture and manufacturing to knowledge based economy (ref: Section 1.04) Demographic developments are leading to fewer people in the prime workforce age group Flattening and declining birthrates around the world are reducing workforce supply Job opportunities for low skilled workers are declining everywhere Expanding economic development worldwide is demanding more products and services Technology progress is demanding an increase in quality and quantity of workforce Global competition is increasingly generating greater demands for quality workers Source: Confronting the Coming Talent Crunch; What is Next?

This infrastructure is critical to building and sustaining a viable innovation economy.
©2007 ViTAL Economy, Inc. 19 Knowledge Infrastructure: Roles Regional knowledge infrastructures have three primary roles in building a robust and growing knowledge economy 1.Creating Knowledge Education and skills programs that build, retain and/or acquire skills R&D programs that support innovation through investment 2.Sharing Knowledge Build critical mass and linkages programs which increase collaboration Strengthen information & communication networks expand ICT systems 3.Using Knowledge Commercialization processes improve prospects for commercialization Develop clusters programs to strengthen existing and build emerging clusters Attract & secure Investments programs to increase investment capital for R&D Develop intl linkages programs to facilitate international R&D linkages Source: The Role of Knowledge Infrastructure in Regional Economic Development, Canadian Journal of Regional Science 2005 and Western Australian Technology & Industry Advisory Council, Knowledge Infrastructure: Assessment
