Statement from the Dallas Regional Chamber and Fort Worth Chamber on DFW Region Advancing to Next Round of Amazon’s HQ2 Consideration
The Dallas Regional Chamber and Fort Worth Chamber are pleased that Amazon has included the DFW Region as one of 20 markets for additional consideration as the location of its second headquarters.
In collaboration with regional economic development partners, the Dallas Regional Chamber and the Fort Worth Chamber worked closely throughout to collect, organize and deliver the regional-level data and information that was requested by Amazon.
“The DFW Region’s unified submittal was diligent, thoughtful and comprehensive in responding to the specific questions outlined in the Amazon RFP and gave us a chance to showcase the many reasons DFW has been such a strong and growing business community over the past eight years,” said Mike Rosa, senior vice president of economic development at the Dallas Regional Chamber. “We’re proud of the great work done by our regional cities and leaders. We’re looking forward to the next steps and are in direct contact with Amazon to begin that process.”
“One of the most compelling aspects of our proposal was the diversity of options we offer as a regional hub of economic development,” said Brandom Gengelbach, executive vice president of economic development for the Fort Worth Chamber. “We are excited that Amazon has determined that our region’s proposal merits additional consideration, and we’re confident that upon further inspection Amazon will soon realize all of the reasons why this region has been a magnet for corporate headquarters locations in recent years.”
