Summer 2010 Montana Department of Commerce Business Resources Division Newsletter
Greetings from Montana Department of Commerce Director Dore Schwinden
A recent report from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce says Montana is definitely on the move for economic growth – especially for entrepreneurs and business innovators.
The report – Enterprising States: Creating Jobs, Economic Development, and Prosperity in Challenging Times – looks at the success of state-driven economic development by evaluating state policies, practices, job creation and other economic outputs.
The report ranks Montana first in the nation in the category of Entrepreneurship and Innovation Performers. Montana also makes the top ten for states in the category of Overall Growth Performers.
This is great news. It is proof we’re on the right track. We are moving forward.
I am committed to continuing this momentum. Together, through Governor Brian Schweitzer’s economic vision, Montana’s economic development partners and the valuable resources available to businesses through the Montana Department of Commerce, we will continue to create a climate for economic prosperity in Montana.
Dore Schwinden, Director
