LOUISIANA RANKS

Area Development has ranked Louisiana #5 in the magazine’s annual "Top States for Doing Business" report, with the state climbing three spots from its #8 ranking last year.  The 2016 report represents the sixth consecutive year Louisiana has ranked in the nation’s Top 10, and this year’s ranking is the highest ever for the state.  Area Development surveys the nation’s top site selection consultants to produce the report’s findings.

In addition to the overall Top States for Doing Business ranking, Area Development ranked states in a number of specific business categories. For example, Louisiana ranks #2 in Business Incentive Programs; #2 in Leading Workforce Development Programs; #3 in Cooperative and Responsive State Government; #5 in Favorable Regulatory Environment; and #7 in Speed of Permitting.
