Greater Chicagoland Economic Partnership

The new Greater Chicagoland Economic Partnership was announced this week and includes the City of Chicago, Cook County and six counties across the northeastern Illinois region including Will County.

This exciting new partnership will serve as a driving force of business on a regional level focused on promoting the many assets, including extensive freight infrastructure, diverse talent, strong export industries, and world-class institutions of innovation, research, and culture to develop a competitive global identity. Work began more than two years ago convening the institutions and partners necessary to develop recommendations and consensus on the Partnerships principles and expectations.

Our President & CEO, Doug Pryor is honored to be a board member and is proud to have been invited to participate in the development over the last two years creating this new and exciting regional partnership on behalf of the Will County Center for Economic Development and Will County Executive Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant.

“As our local economy continues to grow and adapt to a changing environment, the importance of a regional partnership has never been clearer. We will be able to achieve more by working together. I look forward to working with my county colleagues throughout the Chicagoland region to develop a comprehensive economic development strategy.”
