Strategic Pathways
From 2015 – 2016, the Raimondo Administration commissioned the Brookings Institute’s Metropolitan Policy Program, Battelle Technology Partnership Practice (now TEConomy Partners, LLC) and Monitor Deloitte to conduct a comprehensive competitive analysis of the state’s economy. The conclusions of this study, released in January 2016, helped shape the Commerce Corporation’s strategy to reposition Rhode Island’s economy and guided staff in deploying the state’s new economic development tools.
