New metropolitan Phoenix export plan will help region’s global economic competitiveness
A regional export plan for Greater Phoenix has been unveiled. The export plan assesses Greater Phoenix’s export climate, sets market-based goals for increasing exports and outlines specific steps that will be taken to promote the region’s economic development efforts. The plan will be overseen by the Metro Phoenix Export Alliance, a new organization composed of C-level industry executives, state leaders and university experts.
“With this export plan, Greater Phoenix is acting on what our research shows is untapped potential to grow the region’s economy and support higher-quality jobs,” said Marek Gootman, Brookings director of strategic partnerships and global initiatives.
