Georgia Ranks 2nd Best for Business on CNBC List


Georgia is near the top of the list for business according to the most recent ranking by CNBC. The business network ranked Georgia the number two state for business on it’s annual “America’s Top States for Business” list. The Peach state jumped into the top 5 from number 8 on the list last year. Georgia ranked highest for it’s economy, workforce, and infrastructure. The state did not fare as well when it came to education, where it ranked 33rd on the list, and quality of life, where it was once again in the bottom half.

Washington State was number 1 and Minnesota, Texas, and North Carolina rounded out the top five. Georgia finished just ahead of number 3 Minnesota by one point. At the other end of the spectrum, West Virginia was ranked the worst state in country for business.
