Global cities initiative
The Brookings Institution has selected San Diego as part of the first cohort of seven metropolitan areas to participate in the prestigious Brookings Metropolitan Export Exchange.
JPMorgan Chase recently gave $10 million to the Brookings Institution to underwrite the “Global Cities Initiative: A Joint Project of Brookings and JPMorgan Chase,” aimed at helping civic and business leaders identify and leverage their city’s greatest economic development resources. Through our $10 million underwriting, the Global Cities Initiative will provide leaders from the 100 largest U.S. metropolitan areas with in-depth research, analysis and guidance on what their economic development resources are, how best to leverage these resources and how to build economic relationships with their international peers and operate in today’s global environment.
