Greater Oklahoma City is in the geographic center of North America equidistant from the east and west coasts and major trade partners of Canada and Mexico. The ten county region is at the crossroads of the U.S., sitting at the heart of three major national highways on the NAFTA corridor.
There's a reason Greater Oklahoma City is such a great place for business: Location. The ten county region is positioned within a day's drive of the rapidly-growing south-central region (OK, TX, AR, LA) projected to grow more than 44% during the next 25 years.
Local Market Monitor’s Home Price Forecast, which predicts local market behavior, has identified Oklahoma City as being among the top 10 MSAs for best expected performance in home prices over the next 12 months.

The Greater Oklahoma City Partnership encompasses a 10-county region, working together to market Greater Oklahoma City and to provide quality client services. The partners include cities, counties, utilities, chambers of commerce, state government and other entities that employ full-time economic development professionals.
By joining forces, the members of the Greater Oklahoma City Partnership can work together to ensure that companies are fully informed of what the region has to offer.
When companies are looking to move or expand, they look at an entire region rather than an individual city. The two main goals of the Partnership are customer service and marketing.
For a business considering a new location, their interest in a region is not limited by municipal or county boundaries – they are looking at workforce and the availability of resources. The Partnership allows the region to respond with information that addresses all of a company’s requests and makes a multitalented team of state and local economic development specialists available to work on a project.
