Linked by the Connecticut River, Interstate 91 and a shared airport, industrial and cultural heritage, Greater Hartford and Greater Springfield together form an economic powerhouse. Only 25 miles apart, the two cities anchor a combined region that constitutes the second largest population, education and economic center in New England.
Area political, business and government leaders have now formalized cooperation to advance the region’s economy and quality of life. In September 2000, these leaders signed a compact creating the Hartford-Springfield Economic Partnership.
This web site describes the partnership and the resources and strengths of this region. You’ll learn more about the unique region’s diverse economy, its population and labor force, its world-renowned colleges and universities and rich history of innovation — the reasons it is dubbed “New England’s Knowledge Corridor.” You’ll also discover the area’s many cultural and tourist attractions and have the opportunity to explore their own web sites.
Enjoy your visit to the dynamic Hartford-Springfield region!
The partnership’s first State-of-the-Region Briefing will take place on Friday, October 5, 2001 (7:30-10:30 a.m.) at La Renaissance, East Windsor, Connecticut. Click here for more details and a brochure of the event.
