Since 2002 the Oregon Business Plan has been the state’s principal economic development forum, bringing together leaders from business, government, and nonprofit sectors to consider policies and initiatives to improve Oregon’s economy and life. In pursuit of Shared Prosperity, our strategic vision for the 2020s, the goals we advocate are to grow wages, increase the share of Oregonians working, grow household wealth, and increase economic mobility across Oregon’s diverse communities and geography.
The Business Plan has helped Oregon navigate two recessions and shape policy for a range of issues. Now we face the challenge of seizing opportunities for long-term, equitably shared prosperity as we move beyond the Covid pandemic. Please read our policy and investment proposals for the year ahead.
The December 12, 2022, Leadership Summit, Seizing the Moment, marked the 20th year of the Business Plan. Leaders from across the state converged at the Oregon Convention Center to discuss key policy issues for Oregon and the Business Plan’s strategy for the year ahead.
