Metro Jacksonville/Northeast Florida Export Market Assessment: The Case for Exports (PDF 5.5M)
In Nov. 2013, the Jacksonville metro area was selected to join a new exchange network created by the Global Cities Initiative, a joint project of Brookings and JPMorgan Chase.
Jacksonville joins Atlanta; Greenville, S.C.; Indianapolis; Milwaukee; Phoenix; Sacramento, Calif.; and Wichita, Kan., in the Exchange’s inaugural class, which will work together over the next four years to establish new metro-to-metro relationships and to share best practices in global economic development.
As part of the Exchange, Jacksonville will first develop a regional export plan and later integrate a foreign direct investment strategy. Together these plans, which may also grow to include logistics and advanced industries, will comprise a customized global engagement strategy to strengthen the region's global economic connections and competitiveness.
