The annual Milken Institute Best-Performing Cities Report is a data-driven, comprehensive measure of economic strength across America's metropolitan areas. What are the trends, where is it happening, and what does it mean for America's broader economy? America's high-tech sector and the industrial and business investment that goes along with it underlie the economic strength of leading growth regions in the United States in this year's report. This briefing will discuss how certain industry sectors, regions and policies are driving economic growth in the U.S.
