Welcome to the Oregon Business Plan

Since 2002 the Oregon Business Plan has been the state’s principal economic development forum. Its signature event is the annual Leadership Summit that draws more than a thousand business, elected, civic, and nonprofit leaders to identify and vet issues critical to Oregon’s economy and life. The work of the Business Plan goes on year round in studying and framing public policies to solve problems or capitalize on opportunities that can improve Oregon’s economy. Areas of focus include state finance, education, poverty, infrastructure, and natural resources.

2019 LEADERSHIP SUMMIT: THE LONG GAME

At the 2019 Leadership Summit, set for December 16, the Oregon Business Plan returns to a strong focus on economic development for the long term.  It asks, how can we shape our economic strategy in the coming decade and beyond to lift up all Oregonians and support strong, healthy communities? Here’s a brief description of the Summit on this site, plus an online registration link. We’ll soon have more on the Summit, including a full agenda.
