Louisiana’s Business Climate Ranked # 4 In The Nation

Today, “Business Facilities” announced Louisiana’s business climate ranked No. 4 in the nation.

This is the highest-ever business climate ranking for the state.

Governor Bobby Jindal’s office says it’s a signal of Louisiana’s role as one of the top destinations for business investment and job creation in America.

They have also announced that, for the fourth year in a row, “Business Facilities” magazine has ranked LED FastStart®, Louisiana’s customized workforce development program for expanding companies, as the top state workforce development program in America.

Governor Jindal said,

“With our business climate ranked No. 4 in the nation, we are sending a strong message to the world that Louisiana is one of the best places for businesses to invest and create jobs. More and more companies are investing or expanding in Louisiana, thanks in part to our top-ranked workforce training program and one of the best business climates in the country. These rankings speak volumes about our work to eliminate burdensome business taxes, rein in excessive spending, reform our governmental ethics laws and provide new opportunities to Louisiana students. Today’s announcement is great news, but we are not stopping here. We won’t stop working until Louisiana is the best place in the world for businesses to invest and create jobs so that our children can pursue their dreams right here at home.”

Business Facilities’ Editor in Chief Jack Rogers writes, “Louisiana’s innovative workforce training effort remains the gold standard for this critical development requirement.”

The Jindal Administration says since 2008, Louisiana has secured economic development projects that are creating more than 63,000 new direct and indirect jobs and more than $28 billion in new capital investment, along with hundreds of millions of dollars in new sales for Louisiana’s small businesses.

“Business Facilities” has been a leading source of intelligence on corporate expansion and relocation projects since 1968. For more on the 2013 Rankings Report, visit
