Public-private partnerships are not always multimillion-dollar deals. Take for example the Arkansas Production Alliance, a public-private partnership that intends to build awareness of central and northwestern Arkansas within the film industry as a good location for movie-making. It's a good example of how regional partnerships can market local assets at a national level.
The Arkansas Economic Development Commission (AEDC), Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce, and Northwest Arkansas Council contributed $24,000 to build a website that will allow counties, cities, and individual property owners to market themselves to the film industry. The site also allows film companies to discuss upcoming films they will be producing.
"As decisions are made by future legislators that will cut back on the incentives we can offer, we will be leaning more and more on local communities to step up," indicates Grant Tennille, executive director of the Arkansas Economic Development Commission.
