Business Friendliness Tops The Charts

<i>This motif is retired and is no longer subject to updates.</i><br/><br/>While Virginia has fallen off recently in its ability to produce US presidents, its standing near the top of CNBC’s Top States for Business list has been very secure, winning the top slot in 2011[1] before slipping to No. 3 in 2012. Propelling the state to its perennial high is a top score in “business friendliness,” which grades how many hurdles are created – or lowered -- by a state’s regulatory and legal framework. Virginia also scores well in education, due in no small part to its wealth of higher-education institutions. Throw in a strong state economy that has attracted a diverse set of major corporate employers (in technology, transportation, real estate, retail), and Virginia is most certainly for lovers -- of business.
