IBM-Plant Locations International -- which advises companies on where to locate -- tracks company announcements and ranks states on their success. Its most recent rankings put South Carolina #1.
South Carolina Commerce Secretary Bobby Hitt said,
“South Carolina is just right for business, and plenty of international companies know it. Hundreds of foreign firms employ tens of thousands of residents throughout our state, creating wealth and helping make the communities they’re in sustainable. The IBM-PLI report’s ranking is another confirmation that people are sitting up and taking notice of the economic development successes we’ve had here in the Palmetto State.”
Congratulations to South Carolina for forward thinking on foreign investment.
