The size of Los Angeles markets, the City's access to the world, breadth of resources, quality of the region's labor pool and the great climate, these are just some of the reasons why businesses of all sizes come here, stay here and thrive.
If L.A. County were a country, our economy would rank 24th in the world just behind Saudi Arabia, Indonesia and Switzerland and in front of Austria, Taiwan, and Argentina.
L.A.'s economic strength stems from numerous factors, including the explosive growth of international trade between the U.S. and Asia, making Los Angeles America's #1 gateway to the global economy.
The Mayor's Office of Economic and Business Policy supports international business in Los Angeles, working to maintain and grow Los Angeles's prominence in this sector.
