Georgia awarded Gold Shovel for jobs and investment

Georgia has been awarded a Gold Shovel by Area Development Magazine for generating the most jobs and investment in the United States for the eight to 12 million population category.

“We are honored to receive the Gold Shovel in recognition of Georgia’s top-notch business environment, which creates immeasurable growth, investment, and opportunity in every corner of our state,” Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp said. “Our unmatched workforce, world-renowned logistics, and pro-business climate make the peach state an ideal location for business investment. I want to thank our state's economic development team and local officials for their efforts to secure this honor for Georgians.”

Area Development’s annual Gold and Silver Shovel Awards give recognition to state and local economic development agencies that leverage innovative policies, workforce development, and logistics hubs to drive investment and job creation. 

All states were invited to submit information to Area Development on major groundbreakings, investments, and business expansions occurring in 2018.

A report on the 2019 Gold and Silver Shovel Award Winners is published in the Q2/2019 issue of Area Development online at
