The Georgia Chamber hosted its annual Eggs & Issues Breakfast at the Georgia World Congress Center on January 16, 2019. Elected officials and industry leaders from across the state provided a legislative overview and discussed issues pertinent to Georgia’s changing economy.

Special guests at this year’s sold-out event included newly-inaugurated Governor Brian Kemp, Lieutenant Governor Geoff Duncan, Speaker of the House David Ralston, and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms.
“It’s time to start building on this solid foundation that came before us by implementing economic development, teacher pay raises, a crackdown on criminal gang activities, and increase health care access in Georgia,” said Governor Kemp.
Georgia Chamber President & CEO, Chris Clark, introduced the Chamber’s new strategic plan – The New Georgia Economy, which provides exclusive insight into upcoming trends and risks that will impact the business community across Georgia. “This plan reaffirms our commitment to furthering statewide prosperity and establishing a brighter future by embracing change and innovation in every economic sector across the state,” said Clark.

The Chamber was also proud to highlight its 2019 Rural Recommendations, which address a vast array of challenges facing rural Georgia communities and businesses. These recommendations stem from the Chamber’s Tifton office, also known as the Center for Rural Prosperity, which serves as a clearinghouse for rural Georgia data and best practices.
