CHARLESTON, WV (WOAY) – While the COVID-19 pandemic has been ongoing in the state, the West Virginia Chamber has been speaking with its members and looking at necessary steps to lead an economic recovery in the state.
West Virginia Chamber President Steve Roberts stated, “The COVID-19 pandemic has had a major impact on the economy and livelihoods of all West Virginians. While the situation remains serious, we are seeing some good signs and it appears that we may see sectors of the economy start to reopen in the near future. Once the health crisis subsides it will be all-important to hit the ground running with a strong plan to revitalize small businesses and restore our economy.”
Roberts continued, “The West Virginia Chamber has been working with its members across the state and gathering their needs, thoughts and ideas on how to get back on our feet. These members have created ‘A Business and Economic Recovery Plan for West Virginia.’ This 12-point plan covers multiple topics and its implementation will be the primary goal of the West Virginia Chamber.”
The Chamber’s recovery plan is available by visiting www.wvchamber.com. Roberts concluded, “Working together, I am convinced that we will emerge from this pandemic stronger than before and can help set a model for the rest of the nation to follow.”
