Economy

Those staying in corporate housing in Flint, MI for business reasons might appreciate some information about the city’s business environment. The Flint economy has completely been turned around in the last few decades. At its height, Flint was one of the largest cities in Michigan and home to many of GM’s auto manufacturing plants. But the relocation of many of GM’s Plants to Mexico resulted in more than 50% of the original population in Flint leaving town.

However, after a brief spell as a run down and dilapidated town, Flint has begun its turnaround with the latest attraction of two industries that are poised to return Flint to its original economic prosperity. But the road is long and there are a number of pitfalls ahead.

The two areas that will make the difference are education and the healthcare industries. The academic forefront is being led by Michigan State University, in an effort to revitalize Flint, by bringing in some of its faculty and staff to set up a new medical teaching facility.
