London Stock Exchange welcomes JAXUSA Partnership and JAX Chamber

London Stock Exchange today welcomes the Jacksonville, Florida, delegation to open the market during their seventh annual sales mission. The delegation supports the mission of JAXUSA Partnership, a division of JAX Chamber that serves as Jacksonville’s regional economic development organization.

JAXUSA Partnership recruits new companies and expands existing business to increase high-wage job growth, private capital investment and a highly skilled talent presence in Northeast Florida. The organization works with economic development partners in the region’s seven counties of Baker, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Nassau, Putnam and St. Johns; the independent authorities of JAXPORT, Jacksonville Aviation Authority, JEA and Jacksonville Transportation Authority; CareerSource Northeast Florida; and more than 145 private-sector investors in its mission to be a catalyst for regional economic growth.

The Jacksonville region is home 1.8 million residents, three Fortune 500 companies, top educational institutions, a low cost of living and high quality of life. The region is growing and is being recognized in the United States and abroad for its strong job recovery, entrepreneurial spirit, tech growth, health care and population gains, among other rankings.

Apart from 2020 due to the global pandemic, the delegation of Jacksonville business and community leaders meet annually with UK-based companies and government officials in conjunction with the annual home game of the National Football League Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars have been playing in London since 2013.

Through the annual Jaguars home game in London, a strong foundation for business and opportunity has been built between the Jacksonville region and the United Kingdom.
