Part of building a robust regional economy is ensuring existing and prospective companies the regional assets necessary for them to thrive. Infrastructure takes many forms, including access to high-speed internet, highways and byways, and commercial real estate availability. Inter-modal transportation is critical to a high-performance region, as is logistics. The EconAlliance Infrastructure/Transportation/Logistics (ITL) Initiative addresses the hard assets facilitating trade and commerce in general, as well as business retention and expansion in the region.
