Atlanta is one of only 10 U.S. alpha-world cities and ranks fourth in the world for Fortune 500 companies headquartered within its city limits. Atlanta is home to the USA’s 10th largest economy and is home to highly developed finance, healthcare, logistics, and manufacturing sectors, with a total annual citywide GDP of $324 billion.
Atlanta is one of the United States’ most influential financial centers, and is home to the district headquarters of the Federal Reserve System, overseeing a majority of the Fed’s operations in the Deep South. Atlanta is a leader in traditional banking, credit tracking, and investment management but is also highly specialized in emerging financial technologies. Recent estimates suggest that 70 percent of all global financial transactions are now passing through companies headquartered in the metro Atlanta area.
Atlanta’s nascent high-tech community has not only aided the financial sector but has helped create robust biotech and medtech industries as well. Atlanta is home to the headquarters of Emory’s Global Health Institute, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission Region II, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), with the CDC alone responsible for employing over 15,000 people in the Atlanta area.
Logistics and supply chain management is one of Atlanta’s leading industries and is increasingly vital to the smooth operation of the global economy. Atlanta’s largest employer is Delta airlines, and alongside its competitor, Southwest Airlines, the two transportation behemoths have been instrumental in the meteoric rise of Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport as the single busiest airport on the planet, both in passenger traffic and overall aircraft movements.
As was the case in all major manufacturing cities, the early 2000s saw several factory closures in the Atlanta metropolitan area, with the automotive fabrication sector particularly hard hit.

In 2009, with the opening of the first and only Kia plant in the United States in nearby West Point, even automotive manufacturing jobs are beginning to return with considerable force.
