2024 Competitive & Prosperous Report

In 2023 we released updates to the Vibrant Economy Index as it relates to metrics in the four pillars
that drive economic vibrancy: talent, equity, innovation, and resilience. Those enabling metrics are key
because the insights they provide allow us to build strategies to increase our economy’s competitiveness
and prosperity for everyone in the region. This report focuses on these long-term outcomes and provides
a macro-overview of some of this data such as gross regional product (GDP), employment, and wages.
We’ll review projections in these areas through 2030 and provide a summary of initiatives that are being
implemented throughout the region to change the region’s economic trajectory and create a more
vibrant economy for all. It is important to note that these are projections based on where our economy
stands today. Through coordination and aligned strategies that support the enabling concepts of the VEI,
we have the opportunity to shift the direction of these trends over time.
