Triad Tomorrow is based upon four comprehensive goals for development in the Piedmont Triad Region:
- To Build on the Region's Competitive Advantage and Leverage the Marketplace
To achieve true prosperity, the Piedmont Triad will successfully coordinate efforts to build, grow, and maintain robust, competitive areas of proficiency and innovation across the region.
- To Establish and Maintain a Robust Regional Infrastructure
To remain competitive in a growing global economy, the Piedmont Triad should make the revitalization and improvement of state and local infrastructure a priority for funding.
- To Create Vibrant, Healthy, and Resilient Communities
The Piedmont Triad must take a more intentional approach to providing healthy lifestyle options as a way to attract the best and brightest while also helping to minimize the costs of health insurance and medical care for companies and citizens.
To Develop Talented and Innovative People
The Piedmont Triad region will need to employ a wide range of multi-faceted strategies to successfully train, recruit, and retain flexible, entrepreneurial, globally-oriented skilled workers with cross-cutting competencies sought by employers.
