The Global Cities Initiative brought business, community and government leaders together in four cities this quarter to discuss strategies for economic growth:

  • DallasAt the GCI panel discussion at the Dallas Regional Chamber's 2013 Economic Series luncheon, business, civic and government leaders discussed the benefits of the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, its position as a logistics hub and the area's strong workforce. 
  • Beijing. To examine the prospects and challenges of China's ongoing urbanization that has accompanied its economic boom, the Global Cities Initiative partnered with the Brookings-Tsinghua Center for Public Policy to bring leaders together at the recent 2013 J.P. Morgan China Summit in Beijing.
  • Denver. Despite its inland location and hardships just a quarter century ago, the Denver region has emerged as a "competitive middleweight" among global cities thanks to its uniquely collaborative regional leadership.
