Economic Development Planning Process

Learn about the Executive Office of Economic Development's Statewide Economic Development Planning Process

Every four years at the start of a new gubernatorial term, the Executive Office of Economic Development (EOED) is tasked with developing a statewide plan to guide the Commonwealth's economic development activities and investments over the next four years. EOED has assembled an Economic Development Planning Council comprised of business and community leaders, members of the Governor's cabinet, and stakeholders to help craft a strategic plan for Massachusetts economic development policy. EOED is also holding regional planning sessions across the state to gather public input about the state’s economic development needs. In December 2023, EOED will publish a final plan and submit it to the Governor and Legislature.
