Florida's robust military is expected to play a key role in growing the economy into one of the largest in the world.

On Tuesday, the Florida Chamber Foundation announced during the 2019 Military, Defense and Veterans Opportunities Summit that Florida’s defense industry is playing a major role in efforts to grow Florida from its current 17th largest economy in the world to the 10th largest economy.
