ANNAPOLIS, Md. —  The Maryland Chamber of Commerce applauds the recent announcement that Greenbelt, Md. has been selected as the site for the new FBI Headquarters. This is an enormous win for the state of Maryland and will provide significant economic benefits for years to come.

Leveraging Maryland’s strong standing as a cybersecurity hub, anchored by institutions like the National Security Agency and Cyber Command at Fort George G.

We look forward to supporting the development of this state-of-the-art campus and collaborating to ensure it will benefit Maryland for generations to come.
