CHICAGO — America’s “Second City” finds itself behind most other large metropolises in its manufacturing growth, a new study reveals.
More specifically, Chicago’s manufacturing and export sectors aren’t recovering from the recession as quickly as other major metropolitan areas.
Research conducted by the British-based HSBC Bank — the world’s largest bank — and the Chicago Council on Global Affairs shows that while Chicago ranks fourth in the nation in the value of exported goods and services, it ranks 40th in rate of export growth since 2009.
