Oregon Topics: Business
Oregon businesses have evolved over the last few decades to focus less on resource-based industries such as forest products, fishing, and agriculture. These industries continue to be important to the economy but they no long dominate as they once did. Technology, tourism, and various service-based enterprises play an increasingly important role in Oregon's business landscape.
The following resources are related to business topics. Small businesses are a particular focus of this guide.
