I have visited and heard from dozens of business leaders, representing small and large companies. They know the competition we face is national and global. If we are not moving forward, we are falling behind. I directed my team to act with a sense of urgency to create a new 10-year strategic plan that will ensure economic opportunity for all.
- Diversify economy and provide jobs at all levels
- Integrate with local, regional and state partners
- Encourage small business growth, women and minority-owned businesses and entrepreneurs.
