Georgia and Atlanta Use Aerotropolis Concepts To Grow Their Economies

Apr 17, 2014

Two recent articles show how Georgia and Atlanta are using aerotropolis concepts for economic growth.

At the Georgia Logistics Summit, the state’s governor and the commissioner of economic development talked about using highways, railroads, the largest airport in the U.S. and the nation’s fourth largest seaport working “positively together” to develop the state as a logistics hub.

And then 18 organizations around Atlanta are collaborating to transform the vicinity around Hartsfield-Jackson Airport to become a world-class aerotropolis.  They want to grow local and global economic activity to attract international corporations, logistics companies and others that benefit from proximity to the airport.

Regions are competing for economic development. Aerotropolis Milwaukee’s effort is needed to help Southeastern Wisconsin be competitive in the global economy.

To see how organizations – governments, businesses, civic groups, schools – are working together, here are the articles:
