CALIFORNIA ECONOMIC SUMMIT
CAN-DO CALIFORNIA: THRIVING REGIONS LEAD TO A THRIVING STATE
The first-ever California Economic Summit, held May 11, 2012 in Santa Clara, Calif. was an unprecedented gathering of leaders focused on working together to put California's economy on a sustainable path for growth.
Capping the work of fourteen regional forums and five Action Teams, Summit participants concluded the twin pillars of immediate job creation and long-term competitiveness for California are:
Investing in people, infrastructure and innovation in creative ways to prepare our state and our regions to compete in the 21st century global economy.
Streamlining our complex regulatory processes to reduce cost of doing business while maintaining our environmental standards.
