The alliance of 21 business organizations and industry associations known as the Partnership for Growth, has entered the next phase of developing an economic action plan for Prince Edward Island. The Partnership has begun conducting research and, in the coming months, will seek input from Islanders to support the creation of the plan.
The Chamber encourages members to participate in the process by submitting your feedback and attending the public consultations in May. The Chamber will circulate the online form and consultation dates and locations when they are made available – stay tuned!
Never in PEI has a group of this size come together to chart the course for PEI’s economic future. The Greater Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to be part of this major economic milestone.
During the 2019 provincial election, the Partnership for Growth called for all political parties to commit to working with the private sector to establish an economic action plan that will help realize its vision and move the Island’s economy forward. All four political parties responded in writing with a commitment to do so. Following this, in the 2019 provincial budget, government allocated funds to assist with the plan’s development.
