We appreciate everything you and your teams have done to mobilize to keep Ohio and its businesses going during this unprecedented pandemic.

Although some numbers may be sobering, there are opportunities for Ohio that spark optimism. Under the leadership of the DeWine/Husted Administration, Ohio has been recognized as one of the top states to respond to COVID-19. We can leverage that attention to make Ohio stronger, built on the foundation of what already makes Ohio great.

Moving forward, Ohio will utilize its generations of manufacturing expertise to be a leader in a potential new era for American manufacturing as companies look to reshore. Ohio will lead the way in preparedness for future pandemics as the state’s healthcare industry is among the nation’s best and greatly contributes to the fight against COVID-19. With critical military installations such as Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, we also envision an Ohio that is America’s best state for military missions, families and veterans.

An affordable cost of living and high quality of life for workforce and families provides individuals with diverse communities and opportunities to thrive. Ohio can become the best state for anyone to live, work, grow a business and achieve their version of the American Dream.

It will take our economic development partnership to make this happen. The value proposition of Ohio’s economic development network has never been more evident than during this crisis. Our combined efforts have made it possible to listen to businesses, work together and respond in a way that provides the best possible support. We’ll share more on this with you in the weeks to come.

As Ohio reopens, JobsOhio’s Ohio Safe. Ohio Working page will continue to be an up-to-date resource for companies, and we encourage you to share this page with businesses in your communities.

Ohio will persevere. We’re #InThisTogetherOhio!

Very respectfully,

J.P. Nauseef
