International Economic Development
WELCOME TO THE DALLAS/ FORT WORTH REGION!
The Dallas Regional Chamber welcomes you and your company to Dallas/Fort Worth. This region is an innovation hub with a wealth of resources that make it an ideal business climate. The region’s attractive quality of life, expanding economy, low cost of living, young and skilled labor force, favorable business climate, and absence of heavy business and personal taxes all contribute to the thriving DFW location. Forward looking companies, seeking a friendly and profitable place to do business, are discovering our numerous benefits.
DFW is a major international gateway due to its central location and world-class transportation infrastructure. The region excels in passenger air travel and air cargo operations with the U.S.’s third busiest airport, DFW International Airport, and has the world’s first 100 percent industrial airport, Fort Worth Alliance Airport. Our roads and rail lines are remarkable for delivery of freight products across the country. This is why the region ranks among the top three U.S. metropolitan areas for business expansions, relocations and employment growth. DFW’s young, highly educated workforce of more than three million people is growing quickly, providing businesses with the abundance of talent they need to make their business a success.
We know you will find yourself right at home in the Dallas/Fort Worth region. I encourage you to view a business competitiveness survey our Chamber completed on the region at www.dallaschamber.org/GlobalDFW. We look forward to supporting your business expansion projects.
