The reinstatement of business closures throughout California is another blow to struggling businesses that were just opening their doors. While we must remain vigilant about our health and safety, it is now more important than ever to shop locally to support our regional economy. The Governor's launch of #ShopSafeShopLocal campaign urges just that, investing in our small businesses to lessen the financial burden of COVID-19.
While we navigate through the changes this pandemic has brought on, GSEC continues to work with our Board and community stakeholders to help carve channels for economic recovery. This includes bridging the gap in the digital divide with better access to the internet especially in low income neighborhoods; fostering an environment of growth for tradable sector industries including life sciences and mobility; and supporting digital education and job placement initiatives throughout Greater Sacramento.
Together we will overcome obstacles and forge a better and bolder economy.
