Great Lakes Metro Chambers Coalition

The Great Lakes Region is the world’s most important economic engine, covering all or parts of twelve states and two Canadian provinces. Indeed, it is the second largest economy in the world, the cradle of innovation, ingenuity and productivity, the home of many or the world’s leading educational and health care institutions, and the source of 20% of the world’s fresh water supply.

The region faces significant challenges as it adjusts to a new global economy – challenges that call for a change in approach to the region’s future. Those changes include a new partnership between the federal government and the Great Lakes states to provide an immediate boost to the region’s economy through significant job-creating infrastructure investment, as well as new policies to help drive the long term economic transformation of the region.

A group of metropolitan chambers of commerce has been developing an agenda for the transformation of the Great Lakes region, based on a new collaboration among federal, state, and local government and the private sector, and emphasizing strategic federal investment in five key areas that will help return the region to its historical role as a jobs-creating machine.
