Houston Metro Export Plan and 2016 Global Houston Trade Profiles


Helping to prime Houston as America's next great global city, the Houston Global Cities Initiative (GCI) Steering Committee created the Houston Metro Export Plan. GCI is a joint project of the Brookings Institution and JPMorgan Chase. The plan applies six key findings from an in-depth market assessment to develop targeted export-related strategies to create jobs by helping companies increase their reach with global markets and customers.

The 2016 Global Houston Trade Profiles document details each of Houston's top 20 trade partners. The trade profiles highlight Houston's commercial and cultural connections and identify emerging export opportunities.
