The South Carolina Chamber of Commerce recently released its 2017 An­nual Competitiveness Agenda, aimed at taking a stand on statewide issues and potential legislative issues for the  year

“For Palmetto State busi­nesses to grow and prosper, we have to take steps to make our state’s climate more business friendly and competitive," Chamber President Ted Pitts said. "Our state has become the ‘it’ state for jobs, and we need to devel­op the skilled workforce to fill them."  

Other items on the agenda included filling the workforce pipeline, cutting the red tape on business licensing, and providing South Carolina’s small business community with a standardized business licensing pro­cess.

"Our current business licensing system is one of the most business un­friendly policies that our small businesses have to deal with,' Pitts said.

The agenda is a compilation of concerns gathered from chambers around the state when the South Carolina Chamber held its grassroots meeting.
