PORTLAND The sixth annual Oregon Business Leadership Summit filled the Oregon Convention Center in early December with 1,000 business and political leaders who braved the year’s worst storm to listen, learn and think about the economic issues facing the state. The summit debuted a new focus by the Oregon Business Plan, which had “moving forward” as its theme: going green in a big way. The OBP wants Oregon to establish itself as a leader in sustainable practices and billed the new focus as Business Plan 2.0. The major green initiatives are a fresh look at land use, an eco-systems services marketplace, making Oregon a global center for sustainability learning and reforestation of federal forests. For updates and details, go to oregonbusinessplan.org. Another hot topic was transportation issues. Gov. Ted Kulongoski in his speech to the summit focused on the problem of the state’s aging transportation infrastructure and has made financing for transportation a top priority for the 2009 legislative session.
