A new report released as part of the Global Cities Initiative – a five-year joint project between JPMorgan Chase and Brookings – focuses on export performance and its role in the U.S. economic recovery.
Brookings’ Export Nation 2013 reveals that exports have accounted for more than half of the post-recession growth in the largest metro areas within the U.S. However, the report shows that U.S. metros are not fulfilling their export potential.
Export Nation 2013 provides data to help metropolitan leaders understand their unique qualities, including industry specializations. This report is the third edition of Export Nation, which updates and builds upon the results of the previous two analyses to examine changes across the metropolitan export landscape.
