Detroit Submits Stirring Video with Amazon HQ Proposal

Check out the video D-FW is using to get Amazon to Texas and see if you would be impressed

The company is promising 50,000 high-paying jobs and a $5-billion USA investment for the winning city.

At least 12 Canadian communities have revealed they submitted bids for the headquarters by Amazon's Thursday night deadline, including Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Montreal and Halifax. As many as 100 cities were expected to respond to the request for a proposal that would include financial incentives.

One of the world's most powerful companies could be heading to the Portland area.

"Northwest Indiana touts a close proximity to Chicago; Gary and Griffith airports; and enjoys the benefits of Indiana's 'pro-business environment, '" the resolution said.

Janik would not discuss details of the bid.

Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson and Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish announced the submission in a almost seven-minute video, posted here.

Amazon said it was also looking for a location with an educated labor pool and a strong university system to fill the 50,000 jobs a headquarters would likely bring with it. They suggested that when members of the public talk about the project on social media, they use the hashtag #AMAZONHQ2CLE.

Pennsylvania is offering Amazon $1 billion in tax breaks as part of their bid. It stated that the bid "portrays the city's and county's economic momentum, livability, geographic advantages and other assets".

Several hundred communities were expected to compete for Amazon's expansion. Time and again, we have demonstrated the ability to tackle major initiatives and be agile when we see a significant opportunity.

If senior executives at Amazon's Seattle headquarters had never heard of Bradford, Innisfil or West Gwillimbury before, the little Ontario towns have put themselves on the radar screen with a surprise joint bid to become home to the online retailer's second global headquarters.
