LAUNCH | The Greater Portland Global Trade and Investment Plan

Events | Headline and Cultural Forums

How will we create thousands of family-wage jobs by expanding exports and increasing foreign direct investment in the region? What role do manufacturing, exports, foreign direct investment, freight flow, and immigration play in raising the bar for Portland as a Global City? Join us for the official launch of Greater Portland’s Global Trade and Investment Plan with a Plan presentation by Greater Portland Inc and the Portland Development Commission as well as a discussion of foreign direct investment and exports with experts from Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Program and JPMorgan Chase. Come and learn about the bold, ambitious regional strategies being implemented to boost global trade and investment, forge partnerships between Greater Portland and international metropolitan areas, and expand opportunities for robust engagement and investment and policy innovations on the state and federal levels.

Copresented with Greater Portland, Inc., Portland Development Commission, Portland Business Alliance/Pacific NW International Trade Association and the Port of Portland.

The Greater Portland Global Trade and Investment Plan draws on the region’s work in the Global Cities Initiative, a joint project of the Brookings Institution and JPMorgan Chase, to integrate exports and foreign direct investment (FDI) into one strategic plan that replaces the Greater Portland Export Initiative and escalates global engagement to realize a stronger regional economy.
