At the start of 2015, Dr. Fuller warned regional leaders that Greater Washington was at risk of falling behind other major metropolitan regional economies if there was not an increase in regional cooperation and a decrease in the region’s reliance on federal funding. Heeding his call for action, the 2030 Group and a strong cross-sector coalition of regional leaders came together to support The Roadmap for the Washington Region’s Future Economy.

The Roadmap research team, led by Dr. Fuller, identified seven advanced industrial clusters that could spur economic growth and development for the region over the next decade based on the region’s competitive advantages, and interviewed over 30 of the region’s top business leaders to better understand what it’ll take to maximize the potential growth of these industries in Greater Washington.

As a result of the Roadmap, there is consensus behind the fact that we must address our transportation and housing affordability issues, rebrand the region, and increase the collaboration between the academic sector and business community in a way that ignites the entrepreneurial culture across the region.
