The term globalization may not be in your everyday vocabulary, especially if you are not engaged in international trade or investment. But globalization is an exciting phenomenon that is contributing to economic growth in the United States as well as the nations we interact with across the globe. It may surprise you to learn that Chicago, Illinois, is the top ranked destination in the U.S. for foreign direct investment (FDI), according to IBM’s Global Location Trends 2014 Annual Report. Chicago is ranked fifth globally.
There are many ways the city is able to expand its global reach. One is through Chicago Sister Cities International, a division of World Business Chicago. Leadership is provided for economic development, education, tourism, immigration and cultural enrichment to 28 sister cities.
Another way is through the international business resources of the Consulates and Consular Corps of 85 countries, international Chambers of Commerce and international trade associations, all in Chicago.
Chicago is proud to be home to one of the largest diplomatic communities in the United States with diplomats working to build and enhance relationships between their countries and the states, promoting trade, tourism, and culture.
