Connections Beyond the Region
Our region’s economic activity has a reach far beyond the borders of our counties. Our airports, seaports, and other modes, as seen in Connectivity, connect us to the state, the greater Northwest, Cascadia, the nation, and the world. For example, some shrimp harvested in Newport makes its way all the way to Denmark, as discussed in Food Access and Agriculture. The map shows the many countries represented in OSU’s student body, and also shows the geographic locations of inventors who have collaborated on patents with inventors in our region.
