Georgia Named No. 1 State in U.S. for Business

Georgia’s business climate has been named No. 1 in the nation by Site Selection magazine, one of the nation’s top economic development trade publications. Governor Nathan Deal, along with Home Depot, Gulfstream, UPS and partners around the state, gathered at the State Capitol to announce the ranking. Site Selection releases its annual rankings each November, basing its research partially on a survey of corporate real estate executives and in part by an index of tax burden criteria, according to the Tax Foundation and KPMG’s Location Matters analysis and the states’ performance in Conway Data’s New Plant Database, which tracks new and expanded business facility activity.
