Report lists steps to make Mass. more competitive

The Patrick administration released a 34-page economic development plan yesterday that proposes dozens of steps to help make the state more competitive, from reducing the cost of energy to beefing up training programs for workers.

The report, by the state Economic Development Planning Council, contains 55 recommendations organized around a few goals: advancing education and workforce development for middle-skill jobs; supporting innovation and entrepreneurship; bolstering regional development through investments in transportation projects and other infrastructure; and making it easier and less costly to do business here.
