Gov. Nathan Deal today announced that Georgia’s business climate has been ranked No. 1 in the nation for the sixth consecutive year by Site Selection, a leading economic development trade publication. Said Deal:
“Here in Georgia, we have truly cultivated an economic environment that rewards hard work and innovation, generates investments in local communities and improves the overall quality of life for families. We have not been content to rest on our laurels, as we’ve cut taxes and made even deeper investments in our workforce since first earning this distinction. We are proud to be the No. 1 state for business and as we look to the future, Georgia will continue to take the steps necessary to attract industry leaders from around the world and help homegrown small businesses succeed. It has been the honor of a lifetime to serve Georgia as governor as we’ve led the nation in economic development and I look forward to Georgia retaining its position as an exceptional place to do business, work, learn, and call home for many years to come.” Click here to read full news release.
