The New Georgia Economy

General Overview

For over a century, the Georgia Chamber has helped businesses and communities mitigate risk, take advantage of opportunities, and better understand the changes impacting our state.

Today, Georgia’s society and economy are rapidly changing and the pandemic, coupled with the recession, has changed how we address innovation, what we consider community, how we work, and ultimately how we approach life. From free enterprise, diversity, and talent to healthcare, infrastructure, innovation, and rural Georgia, we want to explore what comes next and how we plan for the future.

Through a series of in-person events known collectively as the New Georgia Economy (NGE) Tour, the Georgia Chamber will share data and information from our state’s communities to build a comprehensive planning strategy.
