WHY METROPORT FOR BUSINESS

The area served by the Metroport Chamber offers a stimulating business environment for companies to thrive. 7.5 million people live in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, the fourth largest population center in the United States. The metropolitan economy is the fourth largest in the nation and the tenth largest in the world, providing numerous opportunities for development.

 

With Texas’ pro-business atmosphere, companies also will find strategic economic advantages, including competitive tax rates, freeport exemptions, foreign-trade zones, enterprise zones and more. These financing structures are designed to lower the cost of business and provide a sturdy foundation for corporations to succeed. 

In addition, companies have access to a skilled labor force with over 3 million qualified workers living in the Metroplex. Employees benefit with an abundance of affordable housing, excellence in public education and a cost of living generally lower than the national average.
