Agriculture Technology in St. Louis is cited as a successful model and national case study in a new report from the Brookings Metropolitan Policy Program.  

"For nearly two decades, [St. Louis] has patiently and collaboratively made strategic investments in the capital, facilities, and skills that its agriculture technology cluster needs. These investments have made St. Louis a better place to start and grow an ag-tech firm, put the region on the radar of global firms and talent, and positioned it as a leader in solving the global challenge of creating more sustainable food sources" said co-author Ryan Donahue.


Recent months have witnessed a strong debate on international trade policy, not just in the U.S., but across much of the world.

Changes stemming from Brexit, "America First" and an increasingly complex Asia-Pacific landscape call into question the very concept of globalization itself.

Growing Global 2018 will address the challenges and opportunities this presents on an ever-changing global stage with a panel of experts, all sitting ambassadors, from the region's leading trading partners.

We invite you to join us on Friday, September 21, for the region's premier event for international business. For information on sponsorship opportunities, please click here.
