Texas Wins 2023 State Of The Year
Friday, January 05, 2024
Governor Greg Abbott today celebrated that Texas has been named 2023 State of the Year by Business Facilities magazine in recognition of the state's best-in-the-nation business climate, economic development leadership, and a "blockbuster 2023 for capital investment and job creation." This marks the fifth State of the Year win for Texas from Business Facilities, more than any other state.
"Texas moves at the speed of business," said Governor Abbott. "As recognized by Business Facilities magazine, Texas leads the nation for corporate relocations, business expansions, and job creation. I am proud to celebrate Texas as the 2023 State of the Year alongside our state, local, and regional economic development partners, as well as the innovative industry leaders who call Texas home. With the best business climate in the nation, leading investments in education and workforce development, and our young, skilled, diverse, and growing workforce, Texas is poised to lead the nation in 2024."
