BOSTON — Gov. Charlie Baker said an advisory board worked through the weekend to talk with business leaders and compile suggestions for how to restart Massachusetts’ economic engine.


Meetings so far have included representatives from industries that employ more than 1.4 million residents, including banking, life sciences, construction, retail, technology, tourism and recreation. Future meetings, Baker said, will include sports organizations, gaming, cultural institutions and labor representatives.

The governor said feedback from those organizations will be considered as the state plans for the reopening.

“We’re planning to reopen in phases — just as advised by the federal government and others and as other states are starting to do — when the time is right,” Baker said.
