Economy


With a high median income and an unemployment rate well below the national average, Fairfax County has the strongest local economy of any jurisdiction in the Washington D.C. Metro area.

Chairman Bulova believes in preserving Fairfax County’s reputation as a business-friendly community. Part of maintaining Fairfax County’s vibrant economy involves pursuing economic development and revitalization opportunities, workforce development, and affordable housing, while keeping taxes affordable for our residents and corporate neighbors.

While Fairfax County is currently well positioned and recovering from the recession, the County is still not immune from a slow moving economy. In the face of difficult economic challenges, we must ensure that Fairfax County maintain a strong economy, create jobs, and attract the best and brightest. We must also diversify our economy as to not become reliant on any single industry. See below for some of the County's most valuable assets:

Washington Dulles Airport

Mount Vernon

George Mason University, Northern Virginia Community College

Metro

Tysons
