Birmingham has more opportunity.

Strong economies are regional economies.

The Greater Birmingham Region stands as the largest in the state of Alabama, home to 1.1 million residents, a population more than double that of the next largest metro. On top of that, our region generates more than 30% of Alabama’s annual GDP – that means one out of every three dollars comes from our community. The region’s position as Alabama’s economic engine remains indisputable.
