ATLANTA — Each November Site Selection magazine releases a list ranking the top states in which to do business, and for the third year in a row, Georgia has been ranked the #1 state to do business.

The ranking is based on new plant and expansion announcements, along with an assessment of tax burdens with the state. Governor Deal released a statement Monday applauding both public and private sectors saying:

“Once again, Georgia has been named the top state in which to do business, reflecting our success in strengthening Georgia’s economic environment and creating a top-notch workforce,” said Gov. Deal in a prepared statement. “Through collaborative public-private sector efforts, we have created hundreds of thousands of jobs for families, invested millions in our local communities and improved the overall quality of life for our citizens. This ranking is not only a testament to our strong business climate, but it also speaks to the commitment and support from our industry partners, communities and the people of Georgia.”

When Mark Arend, Site Selection’s editor-in-chief, commented on Georgia’s third #1 ranking he mentioned the pattern is not an anomaly.

“…The state clearly has in place the business-attraction attributes most required by companies expanding and establishing new facilities,” Arend said.

Chris Carr, Georgia’s Economic Development Commissioner, has championed Georgia’s “business-friendly environment”.

“We provide companies looking to locate or expand here an experience that they cannot find anywhere else, and we will continue to work hard with our partners from around the state to maintain this reputation.”
