Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 07, 2015
Site Selection magazine has released its Global Best to Invest rankings of global countries and metro areas; the Top Competitive States recognizing excellence on the part of a state-level economic development group; the Top US Economic Development Groups of 2014; and the Top Deals of 2014. In addition, Site Selection magazine announced its first annual Global Best to Invest Top Agencies for 2015, recognizing excellence among global economic development organizations.
Rankings are based on a variety of criteria including capital investment and jobs, both total and per capita, generated by private-sector facility projects tracked in Conway’s proprietary New Plant Database. The Top Agencies awards were determined by the magazine’s editors and a panel of foreign direct investment experts and site selectors looking at factors ranging from agency responsiveness to protecting client confidentiality to after-care services.
Coverage of these awards appears in the May 2015 issue. Web editions of the stories will be posted at SiteSelection.com the first week of May.
