As the fourth-largest city in the U.S. and a major hub for the energy industry, it should be no surprise that Houston has a prominent role in the global economy.

That’s why every year, in an event called Houston’s Global Economy, the Greater Houston Partnership takes a look at how Houston fits into that economy and how developments around the world might potentially affect the city.
