The Greenville economy faces a troubling trend that requires community action. Income growth has slowed significantly in recent years, and the Greenville area finds itself well behind peer communities such as Charleston, Columbia and Greensboro/Winston-Salem on numerous competitiveness indicators. To drive economic growth, Greenville must transition to a more advanced, diversified approach to compete in today's global economy.

To this end, the Greenville Chamber has designed a program of work to ACCELERATE! economic growth. The program employs development strategies that have been proven successful in other top-performing communities and recommended in numerous studies of the Greenville economy.
