In Layman's Terms, it means that Philadelphia is making a conscious effort to create more jobs in new technologies for both its residents and the surrounding suburban counties. Our city is being described as one that is focused on smarter, cleaner, and more sustainable ways of doing business; for our own metropolitan area, and also the world.
