Virginia Named Top Pro-Business State
Washington, D.C., Aug 17 -
Virginia has once again been noted for its pro-business environment. The Pollina Corporate Real Estate gave Virginia the top ranking in 2011 in its national study, Top 10 Pro-Business States for 2011: The Rise of the West. Virginia won by the largest margin in the history of the study. This accolade comes on top of a study by CNBC in July that found Virginia as America’s “Best State for Business.”
Brent Pollina, Vice President of Pollina Corporate Real Estate and author of the study, said, “Virginia can certainly be emulated by other states, which should view Virginia’s economic policies as a coloring book. All they need to do is stay between the lines of the coloring book, and they, too, can create a powerful pro-business environment.”
Contributing to Virginia’s pro-business environment are low taxes, limited regulations, and a great quality of life.
The Commonwealth of Virginia should be proud of this achievement. This type of environment will attract businesses to move here, create jobs, and grow, something that will be hugely beneficial in our current economic environment.
