The Oregon Business Plan, launched in 2002, is an ongoing collaborative effort between Oregon’s business community, its elected leaders, and other key stakeholders to achieve greater economic growth and prosperity across all of Oregon’s regions.
The Business Plan has three specific, ongoing goals:
- Add 25,000 net new jobs per year
- Raise per capita income above the national average by 2020 (it is now 91 percent of that benchmark)
- Reduce the percentage of Oregonians living in poverty from just over 13 percent now to less than 10 percent by 2020.
