TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Governor Ron Desantis spoke about the future of Florida on Florida A&M University's campus Tuesday.

The engagement was a part of the Enterprise Florida Board of Directors meeting at the Al Lawson Center.

Governor Desantis along with other state wide economic leaders spoke about how Florida is currently doing economically and the vision for the future.

Topics included space in Florida, economic opportunities for businesses, and Visit Florida, which is a program that attracts people to Florida.

"I want to be a place where if you are just starting out and have an idea you can put that into practice and start a business and maybe do great things with that," said DeSantis. "I also want to be a place if someone had a business they can move here. I also like, I want big companies too."

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody and FAMU's President Larry Robinson spoke as well.
