GCI Atlanta Rountable: Atlanta from the Air

Adie Tomer

Editor’s Note: On March 20, 2013, as part of the Metro Atlanta convening of the Global Cities Initiative, Brookings helped lead a roundtable to focus on the role of Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in generating economic activity, both local and global. The conversation, which included a presentation by Brookings’s Adie Tomer, senior research associate, associate fellow. and co-author of Global Gateways: International Aviation in Metropolitan America, built on efforts underway by Mayor Kasim Reed, Invest Atlanta, the Metro Atlanta Chamber, and the Atlanta Regional Commission to fully tap the economic potential of the airport.
