Dallas recognized as one of 50 worldwide ‘Future-Ready Economies’
The City of Dallas was recognized by Dell as one of 50 Future-Ready Economies around the world that is embracing technology to adapt and thrive in an ever-changing and globalized future based on human capital, infrastructure and commerce.
Dallas joins sister cities Austin and Houston, nationwide peers Boston, Chicago and Denver, as well as international cities Tokyo, London and Toronto, as models for how well an economy enables its people and organizations to access new tools and ideas that deliver better connections, better outcomes and a better world. Gross metropolitan product and growth rate over the past five years were two of the primary criteria used to select cities for inclusion in Dell’s Future-Ready Economies rankings.
“The cities where we live are faced with new challenges every day,” said Liz Mathews, Dell’s executive director for corporate brand and purpose. “By understanding the Future-Ready Economies and their attributes, cities, businesses and people can create policies and strategies that will enable them to prosper and achieve strong economic health.”
