In the second article about Nashville's global positioning, Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Samar Ali discussed the steps the city must take to continue drawing attention from the global market and further establish itself as a global city. In the first article, "Going Global: Nashville's Progress as an International Business Hub" published in November 2016, Samar discussed the city's journey to becoming an international hub.
In this most recent article, Samar outlined several goals for Nashville to undertake as it continues to establish itself as a global destination, such as providing incentives for foreign firms to move to Nashville, establishing a cross-Atlantic flight from Nashville to Europe and integrating diverse communities into economic, cultural and educational ecosystems. "Nashville and Tennessee leadership have plotted a path to success, and now is the time to cultivate the seeds that have been planted," said Samar.
The full article, "Going Global: What Nashville Needs Now to Become a Global City for the Future," was published by the Nashville Business Journal on January 10, 2017, and is available online.
