Danville has received an award from fDI (Foreign Direct Investment) Magazine, which ranked the city among the top micro cities for economic potential in its 2017-2018 American Cities of the Future study.
Danville ranked eighth in the list.
The magazine, which is a publication of the Financial Times, studies the most promising investment locations in North and South America, and then every two years releases the rankings as part of an analysis of various sized cities.
Micro cities are those with a population less than 100,000.
“It’s very humbling to receive this recognition from fDI and the Financial Times,” said Telly Tucker, director of the Danville Office of Economic Development. “When the international community recognizes the hard work and accomplishments by the City of Danville, it is gratifying on so many levels.”
