Discover the details that reveal our region’s distinctions, the keys to our economic health, and bring to the forefront the framework for our strong and enduring success.

Known as one of the nation’s most livable cities, greater Portland pulls in young people—aka talent—who serve signature industry clusters including athletic apparel and gear (home to Columbia Sportswear, Adidas and Nike), green development (two of Architect Magazine’s top 10 green firms are here) and any number of companies helping turn out windmills and solar panels and fuel cells.
