Gov. Bobby Jindal said, “Economic development has been a top priority for this administration, and recognition such as this from a respected source like Site Selection magazine is a welcome validation of our efforts. From the outset, we have stressed important changes to the way we do business in Louisiana – cutting taxes, revamping workforce training and reforming our governmental ethics laws. The results speak for themselves: Louisiana is a leader in helping businesses and industries expand within our state, relocate to our state, invest in Louisiana and create jobs here for current and future generations. We have cultivated an ideal business climate for advanced manufacturing, software development, energy, aerospace and other industries to invest and create more quality jobs for Louisiana residents than ever before.”
