The Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce outlines its ‘advocacy agenda’ for 2013

Outlining its “advocacy agenda” for 2013, the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce said Wednesday that it will work to increase the availability of skilled immigrant workers; it added that it will also look to advance tax policies that promote the state’s financial services industry and seek to reform waterfront real estate development rules in an effort to “unlock the full potential of Boston’s Innovation District.”

“We have identified a robust advocacy agenda designed to ensure that Greater Boston’s industries are well-positioned to succeed in a global economy,” Paul Guzzi, the chamber’s president and chief executive, said in a statement. “Our proposals will help strengthen and retain our talent capital, make state business tax policy more competitive, and improve the efficiency and financial foundation of the state’s transportation system. We look forward to continuing our collaborative efforts with state and city leaders to accomplish these important goals.”
