Wisconsin’s continuing rise in Chief Executive magazine’s ranking of the best states for business and our recent Silver Shovel Award from Area Development magazine for business expansion projects are testaments to the growing national recognition of the economic assets Wisconsin offers to companies looking to maximize their success. Our evolving business climate story receives perhaps its most complete coverage yet in a joint publication the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) has produced in partnership with Site Selection magazine. It is my pleasure to share with you the Wisconsin Economic Development Guide.

From the strength of our historic and emerging industries and our globally recognized educational institutions to our unmatched workforce and highly responsive economic development network, the Wisconsin Economic Development Guide makes a strong case for starting or growing a business in Wisconsin. It captures the perspectives of business leaders and economic development stakeholders throughout the state, reflecting a wide spectrum of voices expressing the benefits of doing business here.

You can request a copy of the Wisconsin Economic Development Guide here. The magazine will also be distributed to Site Selection subscribers in July, and WEDC will use copies of this informative publication in our ongoing marketing efforts to encourage investment in Wisconsin.

Thank you for your attention and for your continued dedication to helping to move Wisconsin forward.
