Agenda for Prosperity - a vision for all
  
Mayor David Miller and members of the Mayor’s Economic Competitiveness Advisory Committee today unveiled the Agenda for Prosperity, a report that presents an achievable vision for growing the city’s long-term prosperity. The report will be presented Thursday to the City’s Economic Development Committee.

The report’s four pillars - improved business climate, internationalization, productivity and growth, and economic opportunity and inclusion - is a vision for all to aspire, said Mayor Miller.

“This report brings all who can and want to contribute to Toronto’s long-term prosperity around a single, simple agreement on an achievable vision,” said Miller. “I am immensely pleased with the work of the committee and thank them for their dedication and hard work.”

The committee is made up of a cross-section of people from business, labour, small business and academia. They began their work in 2006, culminating in today’s release of the report that will go to City Council at the end of the month.
