Chicago area aims to attract more foreign investments
from Chicago Tribune
Chicago ranks high on lists of the world's global cities, most recently slotted as No. 7 in an A.T. Kearney index. New York, London, Paris, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Los Angeles led the roster. But a 2012 report by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs criticized regional attraction efforts as lacking in focus and underperforming comparable global cities such as Toronto and Bogota, Colombia. Government agencies do not issue foreign investment data by metro area, but research by private firms indicates that Illinois, whose economy is dominated by the Chicago region, lags other populous states.
