http://www.accuratevg.com/ – Greater Baton Rouge Named Second Best Economic Development Market!
Here’s the good news:
“Baton Rouge is ranked second by Southern Business and Development magazine among the top 10 mid-markets of the decade, based on the amount of new and expanded project wins over the last 10 years. Some of the notable projects in the top-10 issue include: Albemarle, Electronic Arts, SNF Holding Company and The Shaw Group. Project wins that affected rankings must have consisted of 200 or more jobs and/or $30 million or more in capital investment. Huntsville, Ala., was the only city to top Baton Rouge.
Baton Rouge was also ranked third-best metro area in economic development in 2009 by Site Selection magazine.
Adam Knapp, BRAC president and CEO, says he attributes the area’s success to the chamber’s “Campaign for a Greater Baton Rouge.” The Southern Business and Development Story can be found here.“
