NEW: Raimondo Announces Plan to Create Jobs + Grow RI Economy

Monday, March 10, 2014

 

RI General Treasurer and Democratic candidate for Governor Gina Raimondo laid out a plan on Monday to grow the Rhode Island economy and create jobs.

Raimondo's plan encompasses:

1. Rebuilding the state's infrastructure.
2. Supporting start-ups and small businesses -- particularly with regulatory reform.
3. Promoting tourism.
4. A strategy to reclaim Rhode Island’s place as a leader in manufacturing.
5. improving Rhode Island's workforce development efforts. Today's focus was manufacturing and workforce development. 
 
“Every Rhode Islander has a manufacturing story to tell; my own father worked at the Bulova Watch factory for 28 years before it closed and the jobs went overseas,” said Raimondo. “And while the textile and jewelry making of our past might not be coming back, the global manufacturing landscape is beginning to change and for the first time in decades, manufacturing is returning to the United States. But it’s higher skill, high tech, advanced manufacturing so we need to act with urgency and have a strategy to seize this opportunity and ensure that our state is getting those jobs."
 
Raimondo's plan to establish Rhode Island as a manufacturing leader calls for a three-pronged approach: fostering innovation, with a focus on the state's strengths, preparing the workforce with 21st century skills and doing more to support existing manufacturers to help them grow.
