Economic development in the Indianapolis region by simple practice should not be divided into domestic and international functions. Every function of economic development including business attraction, existing business expansion, entrepreneur services, advocacy, and even networking should be practiced with a global mindset.
In order to compete on an international stage, a shift in traditional economic development of looking over the proverbial neighbor’s fence of state and county lines is necessary. Seeking global business for our region by providing export assistance and seeking new projects from outside the U.S. is key and will be the sustainable economic development practice of world class cities of the future.
