ATLANTA (CBS46) -

For a fifth year straight, a leading economic development trade magazine has named Georgia the best state in which to do business.

"We are so proud to be ranked No. 1 for business, because behind this ranking is a new job opportunity for a parent, a new business for a community and more economic opportunity for all Georgians," said Gov. Nathan Deal.

Site Selection magazine, published by Conway Data Inc., delivers expansion planning information to 48,000 executives of fast-growing firms.

Deal also announced the addition of five new strategic industry programs to the HOPE Career Grant, effect in January. The new fields include construction, aviation, electrical line work, logistics and automotive technology. This brings the total number to 17 HOPE Career Grant areas of study.
