CORE PA Global is an initiative established to increase the visibility of the 53 counties that make up the core region of Pennsylvania to potential investors in both the international and domestic arenas as well as reshoring prospects. SEDA-COG is the host organization for the initiative.  

The CORE of Pennsylvania boasts abundant and inexpensive utilities, superior infrastructure, a legacy workforce that understands manufacturing, and astounding educational opportunities with nationally ranked public schools, top ranked colleges and universities, and world-class trade and technical schools.  Our strategic location is close to major domestic and international markets with over 100 million people located within a 500 mile radius.  CORE PA is already home to over 2100 foreign owned entities and we are ready to welcome more! 

We are proud to be partnering with over 50 economic development organizations, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the Team Pennsylvania Foundation on this initiative.  We are 53 counties working together as one to attract, retain, and grow business and industry in our region.
