WHO IS IN CHARGE OF
VIRGINIA’S ECONOMIC FUTURE?
The current economic situation and ever-increasing global competition demands long- term strategic thinking and planning if Virginia is to maintain its position as the nation’s best state for business and ensure future prosperity for our citizens.
BLUEPRINT VIRGINIA, facilitated by the Virginia Chamber of Commerce, is a comprehensive effort to provide business leadership, direction and long- range economic development planning for Virginia. This year-long initiative will bring together all sectors of economic development to craft a strategy that will present our elected officials a roadmap for economic competitiveness for the Commonwealth.

The Virginia Chamber and its allies represent over 50,000 businesses in the state. During the next year, we’ll work with our business and community leaders to recognize regional economic development goals and objectives along with overarching statewide themes.
We’ll host public hearings in over 20 communities to introduce BLUEPRINT VIRGINIA regionally and gain perspective on challenges and opportunities specific to different geographical areas of the state.
Our goal is to build a statewide consensus among private and public sector leaders regarding investment priorities.
