Grow Smart is pleased that the RhodeMap RI economic development plan has been adopted despite an aggressive misinformation campaign that raised false fears and baseless conspiracy theories. This pragmatic, asset-based plan was developed over 18 months with substantial input from a broad cross section of the community, including 200 business leaders.
Now it’s time to move forward and restore economic prosperity and opportunity for all Rhode Islanders. We look forward to working with the Governor-Elect, the General Assembly, the business community and interested citizens to begin implementing the sound economic development strategies recommended by the plan.
Thank you to all those who stepped up to advocate for this comprehensive approach to an enduring prosperity.
