collapse Question :
What are the primary jobs of Community/Economic Development?
 ‎(1)

​The primary jobs of Community/Economic Development are those which locally add value to goods and services and “export” those products out of the region and “import” wealth back in to the region. These jobs can come from many sources – not just manufacturing.

Not only "goods" but "services" are exported. These can include tourism destinations, government services, education, data processing centres etc. Whether or not a job is considered primary or secondary is determined by the end user of the good or service, not the provider. Primary Jobs create wealth while the secondary jobs circulate the wealth that already exists in the region.
