The Maine Development Foundation and the Maine State Chamber of Commerce partnered on a research effort to identify the investments and policies that are needed to support long-term economic growth in the state. The final product is a discussion paper designed for decision makers with a list of focused executable recommendations titled, "Making Maine Work." 

The foundations of this work include a survey of business leaders on the factors that affect their investment decisions in Maine titled, "Maine Investment Imperative II: Survey With 1,000 Maine Businesses," and this report, a comprehensive review and research piece titled, "Maine Investment Imperative II: Unleashing the Potential."

Hundreds of experts and over 1,000 Maine business leaders have contributed to this report, identifying key strategies to creating an environment where Maine businesses will invest and grow Maine's economy. This report provides a comprehensive look at the issues affecting the economy and identifies strategies to making Maine a place where businesses want to invest.
