Los Angeles has long been associated with entertainment, but it has booming industries in the manufacturing, aerospace and tech sectors. If it were a country, LA county would be the 20th largest economy in the world. But with success comes social and environmental challenges. Stephen Cheung is Executive Vice President of Los Angeles Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC) and the President of World Trade Center Los Angeles (WTCLA) and is here for the annual Tripartite summit between Auckland, Guangzhou and Los Angeles. He joins Kathryn to talk about the shared prosperity challenges international cities face.
