The Gaithersburg Germantown Chamber of Commerce

GGCC Legislative & Economic Development Agenda

The Chamber takes an active role in advocating and responding to issues of importance to the economic health of our community to create a more business friendly environment for Montgomery County and the State of Maryland. In that spirit, the Chamber will evaluate legislation based on the 5 elements of a vibrant economy:

THE 5 ELEMENTS OF A VIBRANT ECONOMY

1. A competitive business climate

  • A place to do business that is affordable, predictable, and ripe with incentives for growth
  • A place where small businesses can start, thrive, and grow
  • A place where regulatory obstacles do not interfere with private sector job growt

2. A robust private sector environment that works in partnership with the public sector to spur innovation and produce collective problem-solving

3. Strategic process for recruiting new employers to locate in Montgomery County and strengthening existing businesses

4. Enhanced global-trade opportunities
