On Wednesday, Dec. 2, the Gwinnett Chamber hosted a luncheon featuring Georgia’s Lt. Governor Geoff Duncan as the guest speaker. In a year marred with a public health crisis in the coronavirus and social unrest in an election year with heightened political divisiveness, Lt. Governor Duncan highlighted the passage of a COVID-19 liability legislation and a meaningful and bipartisan hate crimes legislation. Furthermore, the Lt. Governor’s office announced the launch of the Partnership for Inclusive Innovation, in which a public-private partnership of businesses and local governments work together to bolster innovation with a mission to recognize Georgia as the tech capital of the east coast.
Georgia has been recognized as the best state in which to do business for the 8th year in a row by Site Selection Magazine and the 7th year in a row by Area Development. As the Georgia general assembly reconvenes for a new session in January, the Lt. Governor hopes to build on that reputation and strengthening our healthcare and education systems. The Gwinnett Chamber remains a willing partner to help our legislators in leading Georgia as a prime state to attract and keep investment now and into the future.
