The Philadelphia region has been chosen to participate in an economic development network that will assist the city in developing plans for sustainable growth.
The exchange was created by the Global Cities Initiative, a five-year joint project between Brookings and JPMorgan Chase. It will help metropolitan areas like Philadelphia in restructuring their economy to have a more robust international presence.
The region was chosen along with Baltimore, Houston, Salt Lake City, Seattle, St. Louis, Fresno, Calif., and Kansas City, Mo. The seven cities join current members that include Chicago, Phoenix and Columbus, Ohio.
