A High Quality of Life for all Maine People

Maine employer's initiative

The Maine Economic Growth Council was established to develop a long-range economic plan for the state and to measure our progress in achieving the plan’s benchmarks and goals. The non-partisan council accomplishes this through the annual release of the Measures of Growth report on the Maine economy. This impartial data-driven report informs debate and action and remains an invaluable resource for policy makers and business leaders in and out of Maine.
