Supporting our cities’ economic future

The Global Cities Initiative is collaboration between the Brookings Institution and JPMorgan Chase that aims to equip business, civic and government leaders from U.S. and global metropolitan areas with the information, policy ideas and global connections they need to thrive in the global economy.
 
Chaired by Richard M. Daley, the former mayor of Chicago, and directed by Brookings' Bruce Katz, the Global Cities Initiative is helping city and metropolitan leaders become more globally fluent by providing an in-depth and data-driven look at their regional standings on crucial global economic measures, highlighting best policy and practice innovations from around the world, and creating an international network of leaders who ultimately trade, invest and grow together.
