1 Nov 2023
Governor Greg Abbott today celebrated Texas being named the Top Business Climate in the nation by Site Selection Magazine. Announced during a press conference at the Governor’s Mansion in Austin, this is the third national best business climate ranking for Texas this year, with awards announced in June and September.
“Today, we celebrate another victory for Texas—this time with Texas listed as the No. 1 business climate in the United States of America,” said Governor Abbott. “This is the first time we’ve won this award from Site Selection since 2011. All of this is a testament to the exceptional economic development professionals and chambers of commerce in Texas. Texas is America’s economic juggernaut, and we are now the eight-largest economy in the entire world. We cut red tape, we have lower taxes, and we have the best workforce in the United States. Most importantly, the Texas economy is great for all Texans. Texas is the modern embodiment of the American dream—the land of freedom for entrepreneurs. Thank you to the hardworking people of Texas for making this award possible.”
