Joint Statement from the Metro Atlanta Chamber and Georgia Chamber

“Georgia celebrates a record-breaking $6.33 billion in economic development investment and an announcement by Area Development magazine that Georgia was named the #1 place for business for the fourth consecutive year. This recognition is a result of our state’s diligent work to invest in workforce, infrastructure, education and our logistics network. We also have the intangible benefit of strong and visionary leaders who have made the right decisions.

“Much credit goes to Gov. Nathan Deal and the General Assembly. Their leadership has aided the strong economic performance and the string of impressive job announcements we’ve experienced in recent years. Gov. Deal’s refusal to repeat the mistakes of other states that enacted discriminatory legislation - and our legislative leaders’ focus on creating an environment for quality jobs for all Georgians instead of divisive issues - have helped us maintain this momentum.

“We will continue to work to ensure that Georgia remains the best place to do business with a focus on issues including workforce development, transportation and education that attract good jobs and improve the quality of life for Georgia families.”
