Magazine names Georgia No. 1 state for business, Gov. Kemp announces
ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp announced Tuesday that the state was named No. 1 to do business in by Area Development magazine for a tenth consecutive year.
Area Development’s 2023 Top States for Doing Business rankings are based on scores from approximately 50 leading site consulting firms from across the U.S. in 14 categories, they said.
Georgia placed in the top 10 for all 14 categories, earning the No. 1 spot in seven classifications and claiming the overall No. 1 ranking, according to the magazine.
“For 10 straight years, the people who help businesses choose where to make long-term investments have repeatedly said Georgia is the best state in the nation for opportunity,” said Kemp. “Despite the unprecedented challenges we’ve seen in recent years, men and women across Georgia continued putting in countless hours of hard work for their communities. Thanks to their efforts, we’ve brought record-breaking jobs and investments to all four corners of the state, especially to rural Georgia.”
