In an increasingly globalized world, no single regional economy can exist in isolation. Today’s businesses require the freedom, flexibility, security and infrastructure to succeed. To this end, the following priorities represent needs of the Greater Louisville region to continue as a vibrant economic competitor on the global stage.
Increased access to capital, patent reform, cybersecurity, and improved assistance for small business will ensure that our entrepreneurs have a secure environment in which to innovate. Funding for education, higher caps on H-1B visas, world class broadband and improved infrastructure will ensure that they have the tools they need to compete. A pro-growth tax code, reasonable environmental regulation, and compensatory flexibility will ensure they have the freedom to succeed. And the reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank, paired with Trade Promotion Authority and the ratification of the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership will ensure that Greater Louisville businesses have every opportunity to benefit from competitive and free world trade.
