The Chicago Council announces the release of its newest publication, Foreign Direct Investment: Globalizing Chicago’s Economic Development Plans, a report from an independent working group of twenty-five Chicago business and civic leaders. One year in the making, the report shows that Chicago lags behind its national and international counterparts in attracting foreign direct investment, resources needed to ensure that Chicago remains globally competitive. Please join study group cochairs, Michael H. Moskow and William A. Osborn, as they present the study group’s key recommendations and findings. The final report will be available at the program.
