Gov. Josh Shapiro to visit Pittsburgh Wednesday

PITTSBURGH — Gov. Josh Shapiro will be in Pittsburgh Wednesday to roll out what he’s calling Pennsylvania’s first statewide economic development plan in two decades.

This will be part of a multi-stop tour. He and other members of his administration will visit Carnegie Mellon.

In a Tuesday stop in the Lehigh Valley, Shapiro outlined five core goals: Invest in economic growth, speed up processing times for things like business licenses, invest in workers including apprenticeships and internships, innovate to win by helping fund start-ups and invest in communities.

He also addressed five main sectors: agriculture, energy, life sciences, manufacturing and robotics and tech.

This is part of a 10-year strategy. Gov. Shapiro will present his budget in Harrisburg on February 6th.
