Consultants rank Alabama among top business-friendly states

Site selection consultants surveyed by national publication Area Development rank Alabama among the top states for business, pointing to strong workforce development programs, a competitive labor environment, and other pro-business factors.

Alabama ranks No. 6 overall in Area Development’s 2016 “Top States for Doing Business” analysis, continuing a long streak near the top of the economic development journal’s annual rankings. The consultants scored Alabama in the Top 10 in nine different categories in the 2016 analysis.
