Emerging from a decade’s worth of poor economic performance, where we lag the US in job growth, productivity, and median wage growth, the Sacramento Region is taking back the reins to develop a more inclusive, prosperous economy.
Preliminary findings from a market assessment conducted by the Brooking’s Institute show that the Sacramento region can take advantage of changing market, technology, and demographic trends, but it must focus on the core drivers and enablers of regional competitiveness and prosperity.
‘A Prosperous Sacramento Region’ seeks to capitalize on these opportunities by developing a strategic framework, with regional buy-in of leaders and stakeholders, to champion a pathway for economic prosperity.
This effort will result in a roadmap for building our emerging clusters into nationally-recognized economic drivers. It will provide a roadmap for creating high-wage, high-growth and inclusive job opportunities. It will take a focused approach to culminate in achieving a more prosperous economy for the Sacramento region.
