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. It is the fourth largest economy in the world with a combined gross product of about $5.7 trillion – the cradle of innovation, ingenuity and productivity, the home of many of the world’s leading educational and healthcare institutions, and the source of 20% of the world’s fresh water supply.  Manufacturing is its cornerstone.

The region is addressing the significant challenges of the global economy – challenges that call for more collaboration among the region’s leaders and with the federal government. The Coalition is supporting job-creating infrastructure investment and new federal policies to help drive the region’s long term economic transformation and competitiveness.

The Coalition has developed a plan for the Great Lakes region and won a number of victories in five categories critical to the region’s economic future:

  • ·       Improved transportation infrastructure

  • ·       Efficient U.S.-Canadian border crossings

  • ·       Highly-skilled immigration

  • ·       Abundant and affordable base load energy

  • ·       Plentiful and clean Great Lakes water
