Gov. Nathan Deal announced that Georgia's business climate has been named No. 1 in the nation by Site Selection magazine.
The magazine releases its annual rankings each November, bases its research partially on a survey of corporate real estate executives and in part by an index of tax burden criteria.
"Our top-ranking business climate would not be possible without the efforts of our partners across the state who have long worked to position Georgia as a global economic powerhouse," said Chris Carr, commissioner of the Georgia Department of Economic Development.
