Georgia Ranks Top State for Business 10 Years in a Row

Georgia has ranked the number one state to do business for the tenth year in a row, according to Area Development. On Tuesday afternoon, Gov. Brian Kemp made what the media has characterized as an “historic economic announcement.”

Governor Kemp invited “constitutional officers, state agency leaders, state legislators, state and local economic developers, and other economic stakeholders to the Governor’s Mansion to share the news.”

Several factors and variables are considered and weighed when ranking the states, including but not limited to “the amount and quality of workforce training programs, the overall cost of doing business, and how competitive the market is.” As reported, Georgia continuously comes out on top.

Georgia Speaker of the House Jon Burns exclaimed: “Georgia’s business climate speaks directly to the importance we place on expanding economic opportunity for our residents.” Burns credited Governor Kemp for Georgia’s success. “I appreciate Governor Brian Kemp’s commitment to working with the legislature to keep Georgia the envy of the nation. I also thank our Georgia Department of Economic Development and private-sector partners who work every day to recruit businesses from around the globe to Georgia.”

As reported, Area Development is a magazine that covers “corporate site selection and relocation,” according to its website. It was founded in 1965. Georgia has consistently ranked number one for business since 2013.
