Oregon's annual Business Plan Leadership Summit starts today with leaders from around the state looking for consensus on how to boost the state's economy.
The gathering comes just days after the Portland Business Alliance and a number of other business-oriented organizations released a report that found the Portland area’s economy has improved since 2009, when it bottomed out during the most recent recession. Although regional employment is currently growing faster than the national average, a higher percent of Portland area workers lost their jobs during the recession, says the report, “A Check-Up on the Portland-Region’s Economic Health.”
