An article in the EXAMINER in June of 2012 had this to say about this corridor:
"Louisville and Lexington companies have the capacity to significantly increase their exports — and thus grow the regional economy and create jobs — if business leaders have support when accessing foreign markets. A new program, fueled in part by Louisville Metro’s Innovation Delivery Team, aims to help businesses navigate the complexities of international business and begin exporting their products and services. The goal is to increase the number of companies that export by 50 percent within the next five years.
"Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer and Lexington Mayor Jim Gray announced the export initiative — ‘Build it Locally, Sell it Globally’ — at today’s meeting of the Bluegrass Economic Advancement Movement, which the mayors formed last year to grow manufacturing and logistics jobs in the region. BEAM is developing a regional business strategy with the assistance of the Brookings Institution in Washington D.C.
"Mayor Fischer’s Innovation Delivery Team, funded by a $4.8 million grant from Bloomberg Philanthropies, will assist the BEAM effort by providing project management and support on the export strategy. The team will ensure the strategy is implemented and that various groups — from business to government and political leaders — are engaged in the effort to ensure success."
