MONTGOMERY, Alabama — A national economic development publication reports that site-selection professionals it surveyed have again ranked Alabama among the top states for business, citing a broad range of factors contributing to a fertile growth environment.
Area Development says Alabama ranks No. 6 overall in its 2022 “Top States for Doing Business” analysis, the same as the previous two years. The showing continues a sustained run in the survey’s overall Top 10 that reflects the state’s commitment to facilitating economic growth and job creation.
In addition, Alabama earned Top 10 rankings in 11 out of 13 different individual categories in the new Area Development survey, spanning the spectrum of critical economic development issues.
