From Site Selection Magazine: Georgia sets a record for the most consecutive top state business climate wins. Governor Brian Kemp, in his first year as state chief executive, weighs in.
There’s no need to remove the billboard signs at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport — the ones in the terminals touting Georgia as the best state for business. They’re accurate for another year, thanks to the Peach State’s seventh consecutive claim to that honor, according to Site Selection’s annual ranking of state business climates. Seven straight wins is unprecedented.
This measure of location attractiveness is unique in that it’s 50% based on objective criteria (see methodology on page 72) and 50% on subjective input, and not from the Site Selection editors. Site location experts in the corporate and consulting communities are asked to rank their top states and are invited to explain their selections.
