In 2014, the World Trade Center St. Louis applied for, and was accepted into, the Brookings Institute’s Global Cities Initiative. Following the development of a Metro Export Plan in 2016, the World Trade Center St. Louis and local leaders conducted a comprehensive market assessment to gain a better understanding of the current level of foreign direct investment (FDI) in the region. Based on that assessment, an FDI Plan was developed. The plan aims to guide the region in pursuing opportunities to attract new companies and investors from across the globe.
