On behalf of the people of the Pittsburgh region, we are proud to welcome the world to Southwestern Pennsylvania for the Pittsburgh Summit 2009

As world leaders gather in our community, they will find a region that has undergone a remarkable economic and environmental transformation. We have built a well-balanced and diversified economy in which the private sector continues to invest and create new jobs. We are proud to utilise our traditional strengths in advanced manufacturing, financial and business services, and energy. We have leveraged research and development at our 35 colleges and universities to innovate new industries in healthcare, life sciences, and information and communication technology. And we have invested in infrastructure and facilities to support a world-class quality of life, from arts and culture to outdoor recreation and green building.

We are still a work in progress, but we have learned many lessons about what it takes to create a regional economy that can provide sustainable prosperity. We look forward to sharing these lessons with the global community in hopes that together, we can build a better world.
