About This Meeting

While the national economy is improving, the pace of growth remains inconsistent. To achieve sustainable and equitable growth, our nation’s economy must be restructured from its inward-focused, debt- and-consumption orientation to a globally engaged model driven by production and innovation.

Business, civic and government leaders from across the nation have called for a new approach, one that creates more and better jobs by engaging rising global demand and attracting global talent and capital. These leaders recognize that only by harnessing the power of cities and metropolitan areas can we continue to foster job growth in the near term and restructure our economy for the long haul.
