BOSTON (AP) — Boston business leaders are out with a list of priorities for the city’s incoming mayor.

The Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce unveiled a “growth agenda” that outlines four key initiatives the group hopes Mayor-elect Martin Walsh will focus on after taking office on Jan. 6.

The chamber is calling for Walsh to work with business and government leaders throughout Greater Boston on infrastructure improvements including the expansion of South Station, upgrades to the Port of Boston and new international connections from Logan International Airport.

The report also asks Walsh to work toward lowering of the city’s commercial property tax rate, a streamlining the permitting process and relaxing the current cap on charter schools in Boston.
