Cincinnati named a top competitive region
Greater Cincinnati earned an impressive distinction in November. Site Selection magazine released their annual “Top Competitive Cities in the World” report, ranking the Greater Cincinnati metro region as a top five most competitive city in North America for Aerospace (No. 2), Chemicals & Plastics (No. 4), Food & Beverage (No. 2), Transportation (No. 5) and Metals (No. 5).
“It’s exciting to see the MSA of Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky and Southeastern Indiana getting noticed,” said Johnna Reeder, president & CEO of REDI Cincinnati. “We have an incredible diversity of businesses and expertise within our region and rankings like this spotlight our capabilities. Everyone is working together to make Greater Cincinnati top of mind – both public and private leaders are committed to growing our economy.”
This is the latest accolade Greater Cincinnati earned. Earlier this year, Cincinnati was named the fastest-growing economy in the Midwest, Forbes called the region a “hotbed for entrepreneurial growth,” and Fortune said it has one of the Top 5 up and coming downtowns.
Greater Cincinnati is letting the world know it’s open for business – and it looks like the world is starting to listen.
