Missouri Chamber Uniting for Recovery Plan
The Uniting For Recovery plan is our COVID-19 economic response agenda to position the state for a strong recovery once the coronavirus threat passes. This plan is founded on the Missouri 2030 strategic initiative, which was established by the Missouri Chamber as a stable, data-backed plan that would guide the state toward economic progress even as political leadership changed and the state faced unexpected challenges. While a global pandemic was not foreseen when Missouri 2030 was conceived, the plan's vision remains a clear guide Missouri must follow to emerge strongly from this pandemic.
