Philadelphia's Global Strength Lies In Its Educational Institutions, Writes Alan Greenberger


In its November 25 - December 1 issue, the Philadelphia Business Journal published the latest in a year-long series, spearheaded by Global Philadelphia Association, that inquires into how business, community, and cultural leaders can reassert Philadelphia's position as a thriving, global city. This month's "Once and Future International City" article was written by the City's Deputy Mayor for Commerce, Alan Greenberger.

In this piece, Mr. Greenberger explores the unique and "natural" assets that make Philadelphia a competitive, global city. The greatest of these assets, Mr. Greenberger argues, "rests with our institutions of education, research, and medicine," institutions that taken collectively, comprise "nearly one-third of the [Philadelphia's] work force."

Global Philadelphia Association is committed to supporting the work of these important and invaluable manufacturers of knowledge and drivers of local business and real estate. Stay up to date on our website to learn about the ever-expanding list of enrichment activities and cultural events hosted by these institutions.
