Keep on top of what Opportunity New Jersey (ONJ) is doing to promote its Plan for an Affordable New Jersey by visiting www.opportunitynj.org.
ONJ’s Economic Development and Advisory Council (EDAC), created this fall to enlist the help of dozens of business organizations to move the agenda, hosted a productive meeting in Trenton Thursday morning to determine the best way to address New Jersey’s economic challenges and steps needed to put the Garden State on the path to affordability and regional competitiveness.
The Plan for an Affordable New Jersey includes supporting the state’s economic growth and streamlining the cost of government. The meeting included representatives from numerous statewide chambers of commerce, business and labor organizations, higher education and economic advocacy groups.
“We are pleased by the progress we have made, and grateful to the Council participants and meeting attendees for their collaboration and insights,” New Jersey State Chamber President Tom Bracken and NJBIA President and CEO Michele Siekerka said in a joint statement. “We look forward to working with our Council members, the ONJ steering committee, and New Jersey’s governor and legislative leaders to effect positive change in 2020 and beyond.”
