Georgia Named ‘Top State for Doing Business’ for 7th Consecutive Year

There’s a reason why Georgia has been named the ‘Top State for Doing Business’ 7 years and counting. Georgia offers businesses a high quality of life and land availability while keeping expenses low.

From the Georgia Department of Economic Development article:

“Area Development’s 2020 Top States for Doing Business results reflect the rankings that states receive based on weighted scores in the following categories: overall cost of doing business, cooperative and responsive state government, favorable regulatory environment, business incentives, workforce development programs, competitive labor environment, speed of permitting, logistics and infrastructure, available real estate, energy availability and costs, site readiness programs, corporate tax environment, and access to capital and projects. Georgia ranked No. 1 in 10 of the thirteen categories and placed in the top five in the other three categories.”
