The Capital Regions’s growth has been slower than that of our peers. Unless we change our trajectory, we risk getting left behind in an increasingly competitive global economy. The challenges we face transcend our internal borders and jurisdictions.
To solve these challenges, we must come together around solutions, rather than allowing boundaries to hold us back. By acting together and focusing on super-regional solutions, we can overcome jurisdictional impediments, achieve solutions at a scale that is equal to the problems we face, and deliver new sources and engines of growth to achieve economic well-being and prosperity.
