The Colorado Chamber of Commerce, along with many partners across the state have been working diligently to improve the business climate in Colorado. Earlier this week, the Colorado Chamber of Commerce partnered with the Grand Junction Area Chamber of Commerce to conduct a regional listening session, which was attended by nearly 40 local business leaders and chamber professionals from across the Western Slope. During the session, the Colorado Chamber shared its Blueprint for a Better Business Climate, which outlines the steps they believe are necessary to create an environment that supports economic growth and job creation.
The Blueprint for a Better Business Climate is the result of extensive research, collaboration, and feedback from business leaders and experts in various fields. It is based on the principle that businesses thrive when they have access to the resources and support they need to succeed.
“We believe that working together with the Grand Junction Area Chamber of Commerce and other local leaders can help us achieve our shared goal of creating a more prosperous business climate in Colorado,” said Loren Furman, President and CEO of the Colorado Chamber of Commerce. “Moving forward, we are committed to continuing the conversation and exploring opportunities to turn these valuable comments into actionable plans that benefit our shared goal of promoting economic prosperity in the state.”
The blueprint covers a range of topics, including workforce development, education and training, regulatory reform, tax policy, and infrastructure investment. It also highlights the importance of promoting entrepreneurship and innovation, which are critical drivers of economic growth and job creation.During the meeting, representatives from the Colorado Chamber of Commerce shared details about the Blueprint and answered questions from the Grand Junction Chamber members. The discussion was focused on how the plan could be implemented at the local level to benefit businesses in the Grand Junction area.
“We were thrilled to have the Colorado Chamber of Commerce visit us and share their Blueprint for a Better Business Climate,” said Candace Carnahan, President and CEO of the Grand Junction Area Chamber of Commerce. “The plan includes a number of initiatives that could have a positive impact on our local economy, and we look forward to exploring how we can work together to implement these ideas.”
The Grand Junction Chamber continues to be a champion for business and continues to work toward how we can create a more competitive and sustainable economy that benefits everyone in the state.
