Minnesota: 2030

Minnesota 2030 Minnesota Chamber foundation

Minnesota: 2030 is the first study of its kind in 30 years, taking long-term look at the development of Minnesota’s economy. Our economy is growing at a slow but steady pace – with unemployment at record lows and strong economic diversity. Now is the time to invest in long-term planning to ensure our economy continues to grow and is prepared for the rapid shifts common in the 21st century.

This study will examine two major questions. First, how is Minnesota positioned to change and grow over the next decade, based on the performance of its existing regions and industries? Second, how can we maximize opportunities to advance Minnesota’s economy in the coming decade? This study, brought to you by the Chamber Foundation, will provide Minnesota with a common roadmap for guiding business, policymakers and other thought-leaders to help our state’s economy change and grow.

No organization better is positioned to lead this research. The Minnesota Chamber Foundation is statewide, private-sector led and committed to the health of the state’s economy across all sectors and geographic regions.
