WILMINGTON, Del. (WBOC/AP)- Gov. John Carney has signed incorporation paperwork that is required to help implement changes to Delaware's economic development efforts.

Carney on Monday also on Monday ceremonially signed legislation that restructures the state's economic development efforts, with a focus on supporting small businesses and entrepreneurs. The actual bill signing took place on the last day of the legislative session in June.

Lawmakers earlier this year passed a bill authorizing the establishment of a public-private partnership to lead Delaware's economic development efforts.

The governor will serve as a co-chair of the partnership's board and will appoint at least 10 other members, including six from a list of candidates provided by the State Chamber of Commerce and the Delaware Business Roundtable.

“By restructuring our economic development efforts, we’re positioning Delaware to create good-paying jobs, build an entrepreneurial ecosystem, and ensure that Delaware remains a leading state to do business,” Carney said. “We will partner with private business to draw on new resources, and ideas, for improving our economy. And we will offer new, targeted support for small businesses and entrepreneurs who are responsible for much of our economic growth and job creation."
