As part of developing Maine’s 10-Year Strategic Plan, seven strategies have been identified to help Maine reach its vision of A Diverse & Sustainable Economy for All.
Grow Local Talent
Invest in Mainers through early & adult education
Attract New Talent
Grow Maine's workforce through immigration, in-migration and increased participation
Take advantage of Maine's natural strengths to facilitate growth
Ubiquitous connectivity for rural and low income communities
Promote Hubs of Excellence
Strengthen areas with high growth potential
Providing Supporting Infrastructure
Quality of life investments including childcare, housing and transportation
Maintain Stable and Predictable Business Rules
Consistency, transparency, and timeliness in regulatory standards
Maine has the potential to take advantage of the areas where global trends intersect with Maine's strengths.
When these areas are combined strategically, the opportunities for great jobs and a diversified economy are further multiplied.
These areas are built on Maine’s foundational economic sectors of tourism, hospitality, health care, education, retail, outdoor recreation and the arts. Without these vibrant sectors, we are not Maine.
