This is the second in AS/COA‘€™s three-part series of working papers focusing on new gateway cities. Integration, Competitiveness and Prosperity in the Heartland: Omaha‘€™s Hispanic and Business Communities looks at immigrants‘€™ economic contributions in Omaha-a city where the Latino population has increased 338 percent and the overall foreign-born population jumped 234 percent since 1990. AS/COA examines how businesses, community groups and the local government are working to promote the socioeconomic integration of Latinos and why this is important for the city‘€™s future competitiveness.
