“As the leaders of New York City’s five borough-wide chambers of commerce, we are delighted by today’s news that the city has hit an all-time high in total jobs, regaining jobs lost during the pandemic. This progress is a testament to the resiliency of our business community, and to the leadership of Mayor Adams and his administration who have invested in programs that have helped small businesses – which account for 94 percent of private firms in the city – drive our city’s economic recovery.”
