SAN FRANCISCO, CA – This Tuesday the Bay Area Council Economic Institute will release its biannual comprehensive analysis of the regional economy with exclusive data and insights on different industry sectors, the overall regional economic performance and jobs, and more. The tenth in a series of Profile reports, this latest edition examines a new period of immense growth and innovation, benchmarking the Bay Area’s performance against other knowledge-based economies to assess the region’s national and global competitiveness. One of the key findings in the analysis is that the Bay Area has moved into the top 20 of the world’s largest economy with a GDP of $748 billion.

It also examines the economic and policy challenges that continue to confront the region and megaregion, even in a period of extraordinary growth, and looks to uncover the next wave of innovation and renewal. There is extensive focus on how the tech/innovation industry is continuing to shape and lead the regional economy.

The Economic Institute will host a forum on Tuesday, July 10 from 8:30 to 10:00 a.m. to unveil the profile and review the findings. Please contact Virginia Drake at vdrake@bayareacouncil.org or 415-946-8716 to RSVP.
