Governor Brian P. Kemp today announced that Georgia has been named by Area Development magazine as the No. 1 state for business for the ninth consecutive year. No other state has earned this distinction for so many years. Governor Kemp was joined by executives from Kia Georgia, Bridgestone Golf, and Char-Broil’s parent company W.C. Bradley Corporation as well as members of the General Assembly, state and local economic developers, and local officials at Kia’s training facility in West Point to make the announcement.
“We are honored to accept the title of ‘Top State for Business’ yet again from Area Development for an unprecedented ninth year in a row,” said Governor Kemp. “This is just the latest confirmation that our partnership approach, conservative governing, and dedication to saving both lives and livelihoods during the pandemic were the right choices for the people of Georgia. Thanks to our world-class infrastructure, award-winning workforce training programs, pro-business environment, and most of all our hardworking Georgians, the Peach State is a national leader in the assets job creators look for when deciding where to start, grow, and sustain a thriving business.”
