MO and WV examine economies, strategize on future efforts

September 28, 2017

Two states taking a fresh look at their economies convened task forces that recently released reports detailing efforts the states can make to improve their state’s economic futures. In Missouri, Gov. Eric Greitens asked an innovation task force to take stock of the state’s current standing and offer options to help businesses and innovators succeed. The resulting summary report offers more than 30 options that the state could pursue in growing its economy. In West Virginia, WVU President Gordon Gee, Marshall University President Jerome Gilbert and WV Secretary of Commerce Woody Thrasher released findings from the West Virginia Forward report that identifies possible short- and long-term solutions for the economic challenges the state faces and will result in a memorandum of understanding among the three to help implement the report’s findings.
