A joint project between the Maine State Chamber of Commerce and the Maine Development Foundation

Cover of Making Maine Work

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 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 a comprehensive review and research piece titled, "Maine Investment Imperative II: Unleashing the Potential."

This work was used to create a discussion paper designed for decision makers with a list of focused executable recommendations titled, "Making Maine Work."  This paper offers an overview of the demographic and economic challenges Maine faces and presents a strategy for overcoming them in order to grow the Maine economy.
