Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot and World Business Chicago (WBC) today announced that for the seventh consecutive year, Chicago has been ranked “Top Metro” in the United States for corporate investment by Site Selection magazine. In 2019, the Chicago metro area once again saw more new and expanding corporate locations than any other region in the country.
“Unmatched talent, connectivity and infrastructure are found in every part of Chicago, which gives businesses the confidence they need to thrive and grow,” Mayor Lightfoot said. “Being named number one in the nation for corporate relocations and expansions is a testament to the strength of Chicago’s dynamic economy, powered by industry in communities across the city. We thank our corporate partners for their continued confidence in Chicago, and for their commitment to propel jobs and investment that will help see all Chicagoans prosper.”
