Georgia is the best place in the country for doing business, according to Area Development Magazine’s fifth annual survey of site consultants. Georgia unseats Texas to take the title.
It’s difficult to beat Texas on any list of economic development power states these days, but Georgia did exactly that in the Area Development survey of site consultants, nudging Texas down into the No. 2 spot after it finished No. 1 a year ago. Georgia’s accomplishment was especially impressive because of the breadth of its strong performances over most of the 18 categories voted on by the consultants, including top-three finishes in 12 of them.
The Area Development honor follows other recent recognition of Georgia’s rise in the ranks, which included its choice by a CNBC study as the No. 1 place for business in America. Such rankings “are a testament to the commitment from Georgia businesses, communities, economic development partners, and the people of Georgia,” Gov. Nathan Deal said in a statement, indicating his confidence that “more businesses will consider expanding or relocating here.”
