It is my pleasure to join with the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business & Industry to support October 2017 as Local Chamber of Commerce Month in Pennsylvania.
Since its inception, the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business & Industry has served and advocated for Pennsylvania businesses. By helping its members understand federal and state workplace regulations, the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry helps to create a more prosperous future for the commonwealth and its citizens. Our local chambers of commerce play a critical role in supporting the needs of our vibrant business community, and are essential to the commonwealth’s continued economic growth and advancement. As my administration works hard to retain current and create new family sustaining jobs by supporting business and industry throughout the commonwealth, I am grateful for our local chambers of commerce for providing the invaluable role that they play in ensuring that businesses new and old can continue to prosper in Pennsylvania. I commend Pennsylvania’s local chamber of commerce for representing thousands of businesses, and I am certain their efforts to enhance our communities will serve as an inspiration across the commonwealth for years to come.
As Governor, and on behalf of all citizens of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, I am honored to support October 2017 as Local Chamber of Commerce Month. Please accept my best wishes for continued success.
