The new report, “Measures of Growth 2015” has just been published by the Maine Growth Council under the auspices of the Maine Development Foundation (MDF).
This report is widely regarded as the most important report produced on Maine’s economy. It has been used by public and private leaders to set agendas and develop programs that serve to promote sustainable economic growth in Maine.
The report includes performance indicators that measure Maine’s progress toward achieving a vision: “a high quality of life for all Maine people, grounded in a vibrant and sustainable economy supported by vital communities and a healthy environment.”
The Growth Council was established by the Governor and Legislature in 1993 to report annually on the health of the Maine economy. Council members are appointed jointly by the Governor, Senate President, and Speaker of the House. MDF administers the Council.
The report is available in its entirety for viewing and download on MDF’s website at www.mdf.org.
