Governor Laura Kelly announces Kansas has made Area Development list

This is the first time Kansas has made the list

Kansas Governor Laura Kelly announced today that the state has received Area Development’s Top 20 States for Doing Recognition for 2021.

This is the first time the state of Kansas has made the Top 20 list.

A news release from Kansas Governor Laura Kelly’s Office says,

“Area Development conducts an annual survey of site consultants and location experts on specific location considerations that matter most in corporate decision-making. States are then ranked in 13 categories, including the overall cost of doing business, business incentive programs, workforce training programs and more.

After winning the coveted Gold Shovel award earlier this year, the Top 20 States for Doing Business accolade further validates Kansas as the best place to do business. Since 2019, Kansas has seen over $6 billion in new business dollars invested in the state, and over 28,000 jobs created.”
