Midwest Chambers Unite to Support Coordinated Reopening of the Economy

Will Burns on Friday, April 24, 2020 at 12:00:00 am

More than 40 Midwest and Great Lakes region chambers have united to support a coordinated reopening of the region’s economy. The metro chambers from Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky released the following statement:

“Businesses throughout the Midwest and Ohio River Valley are anxious to get back to work while maintaining the well-being of our workforce and communities.

Successfully combatting COVID-19 will require aggressive, collaborative action among governments, health care professionals, businesses and citizens.  While actions taken in our individual states are central to our own recoveries, we all will continue to be impacted by decisions made – and not made – in other locales.

Recognizing that our economies are interconnected and that people regularly cross state boundaries to access jobs, services and supplies, we support the efforts of our Governors to work together to establish coordinated recovery plans and protocols that will strengthen our economy and preserve our health and safety.

As organizations representing businesses in some of the hardest hit and most important economic engines in the nation, we will continue to serve as critical counselors to our leaders in our state capitols and Washington DC.”
