Economic Development

We all know that a strong small business community means a strong Richmond. Right now businesses in Richmond are in in a tenuous situation because of the ongoing trade threats from the United States and it is becoming much harder to find employees due to a lack of affordable housing. The reality is that the economy is changing, and we need to change with it. What has worked for City Hall in the past is now what we help us achieve success in the future, and we need to recognize that.

The Richmond Community Coalition will build on Richmond’s unique competitive advantage to attract and retain the jobs of tomorrow in order to diversify our local economy. We will bring Richmond to the world and the world to Richmond through trade facilitation and by recruiting international tech companies like Alibaba to set up branch offices here in Richmond.

Do you have ideas to help support Richmond’s economic development? We are here to make sure your voice is heard. Contact us and let us know what you want from City Hall.
