Economic Development Group Releases Portfolio Results

The Chamber’s Economic Development group has produced high-quality results throughout its portfolio of programs since its reset in 2010, highlighted by job creation, capital investment, new contracts for Michigan suppliers, and a strategic commitment to regional and state partnerships.

The Business Attraction team, through collaboration with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) and county economic development corporations throughout Southeast Michigan, has generated more than 800 jobs and $77 million in capital investment. The Pure Michigan Business Connect program, operated through a merger between the Chamber and MEDC, has surpassed $30 million in new contracts for Michigan suppliers, partnering with companies such as Boeing, Ford, Chrysler and Deutz.
