Blueprint for the Next Century

Share Page
Blueprint for the Next Century is a long-term plan developed by employers to ensure economic prosperity for the citizens of Massachusetts.
AIM created the Blueprint as part of its centennial in 2015 and now updates the document annually. 
The Blueprint makes four primary recommendations to create economic growth:
  • Government and business must develop the best system in the world for educating and training workers with the skills to allow Massachusetts companies to succeed in the global economy.
  • Massachusetts must create a uniformly competitive economic structure, including an efficient transportation infrastructure, across all industries, geographic regions and populations.
  • We must establish a world-class state regulatory system that meets the highest standards for efficiency, predictability, transparency, and responsiveness.
  • Massachusetts must find a way to moderate the substantial burden that health care and energy costs place on business growth.
AIM identified these issues based upon conversations with thousands of employers from every sector of the Massachusetts economy. They are complex challenges, not well suited to an Instagram world, but nevertheless issues that represent critical impediments to employers ranging from small manufacturers to global biotechnology companies.
