Business Oregon's Strategic Plan is the result of a year-long effort that identified the most pressing economic development challenges confronting the state of Oregon, then develop a plan that addresses the shifting economic landscape, changing demographics, and unique strengths of Oregon's industries, businesses, and entrepreneurs.
The full plan is available in the resource box on the right, as well as analysis that informed the report.
It fuels the creation of new technologies, companies, and industries.
It attracts talent, creates high-wage jobs, and ultimately drives growth.
Phase two of planning transitioned into focus and action, where agency priorities, the stategies to impact those priorities, and the actions to carry out the strategies were developed.
Finally, metrics were developed to evaluate and measure success over time.
The balance of the plenary session included TED-style talks on PERS reform, revenue reform, Medicaid funding, education investment, housing shortages, forest fires, water, and growth in the Bend area.
The session also heard from leaders of the Legislative Committee on Student Success, which visited communities across the state in 2018 to learn more about what students need to succeed.
