Trending upward on the shoulders of a re-energized automotive industry, Southeast Michigan has plotted a fresh move forward. What does this forward movement mean to each of the communities and are we truly connected as a region? How do all of our individual strengths come together for an even stronger combined unit? Macomb County is a proud member of the Detroit Region and has stepped up its game as a critical piece of the region’s economic ecosystem. Reinvigorating its own identity, Macomb has made itself more competitive with a greater focus on manufacturing capabilities, enhanced quality of life and making sure that our institutions are educating the workforce of today and tomorrow. This has been instrumental in a much-welcomed upsurge in economic, social, and environmental activities in Southeast Michigan.
