Texas Ranks #2 in Top Business Climates

When it comes to a warm and sunny climate, you’ll find it in Texas and in more ways than one. In a new site selection analysis, Texas ranks among the top business climates in the nation.

It’s no surprise for the Lone Star state that continues to top the charts. You may recall Texas was recently named the leader for economic recovery, according to National Journal and The Atlantic. This summer, Texas was named “America’s Top State for Business” by CNBC. For the sixth year in a row, CEO Magazine deemed Texas the “Best State to Do Business.” Texas cities ranked top in “America’s Recovery capitals,” by Forbes and Moody’s Economy. And, released last month, Texas ranked seventh in Forbes’ list of “Best States for Business and Careers.”

It’s no wonder Texas is home to more Fortune 1,000 companies than any other state!

In a recent Keeping Texas Competitive Summit, Gov. Rick Perry said, “The economic principles in place in Texas emphasize the balance between personal freedom and responsibility, not only helping strengthen our economy, but attracting jobs for Texans.”
