Augusta knows the lasting impact the Georgia Cyber Center is already making on our area.
We just like hearing other people say it.
We especially like hearing Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp say it. He visited the Augusta area on Wednesday for several reasons, but appeared at the center on Reynolds Street to announce Georgia’s placement – for a record seventh time – as the state offering the best climate in which to do business.
The honor is bestowed by Site Selection magazine. Its editors describe the publication as “the magazine of corporate expansion and area economic development.” Tens of thousands of corporate executives and economic development professionals consult Site Selection to help guide their choices on where and how to grow business and industry.
And its subscribers are learning – again! – about Georgia’s tremendous opportunities.
Kemp bragged often on the campaign trail last year about Georgia’s six-year streak of No. 1 placements on Site Selection’s list, almost always following the line with, “And we want to make it seven.”
