A message from Chairman Tony Evers on Covid-19

In recent months, the world has seen unprecedented developments related to COVID-19. Most importantly, I encourage you, your family members, friends, and neighbors to take the necessary precautions and preparations to prevent the spread of this virus. Everyone has a role to play.

While COVID-19 puts our work in a different perspective, it also underscores the importance of ensuring basic needs are met. The Governors and Premiers continue to work aggressively to protect the region’s water and to support the small and medium sized businesses which provide a livelihood for so many of our region’s citizens.

How we do our work must change. In coming months, GSGP will be postponing a number of face-to-face events such as a trade mission to Japan and South Korea. In other cases, technology can help to bring people together.  Regardless, GSGP remains focused on our mission - working hard to serve our region and its people.

GSGP is committed to working with federal partners, state officials, and stakeholders to ensure we are doing everything possible to assist during these uncertain times.

I thank you for your continued work with us.
