Greater Portland Global

A global trade and investment plan, Greater Portland Global draws on the region’s work in the Global Cities Initiative (GCI), a joint project of the Brookings Institution and JPMorgan Chase that integrates exports and foreign direct investment (FDI) in one strategic plan.

The Global Cities Initiative replaces the Greater Portland Export Initiative and escalates global engagement to create a stronger regional economy. The plan recognizes Greater Portland’s rich history of local innovation, exports, global excellence, and foreign direct investment as a strong foundation that can propel small, innovative entrepreneurs and domestically focused companies along a continuum to become companies with global presence.
