Santa Fe, N.M. – Governor Susana Martinez announced that New Mexico has been ranked in Site Selection Magazine’s Top State Business Climate Rankings. New Mexico came in at 22nd in the national business climate ranking and 17th in the Executive Survey Rank. A primary component of the ranking is based on a survey of corporate site selection professionals.
“Since 2011, we’ve made it a priority to improve New Mexico’s business climate by cutting taxes, closing loopholes, removing burdensome regulations and strengthening our critical business incentives,” said Governor Susana Martinez. “It’s encouraging to see industry leaders recognize the results of our efforts to create a healthy business climate in New Mexico.”
Today’s news follows Governor Martinez’s recent announcement that New Mexico is a national leader in economic growth. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, New Mexico’s economy was the third-fastest growing in the country through the first quarter of 2017. Governor Martinez also announced earlier this year that Facebook will double its investment in New Mexico – bringing their total commitment to New Mexico to half a billion dollars.
Governor Martinez’s reforms continue to help companies from all across the country and the world grow and thrive in New Mexico – like Facebook, FedEx, Safelite Autoglass, Raytheon, RSI and Keter Plastic. Homegrown New Mexico companies are growing and thriving across the state as well – like Skorpios, Descartes Labs, Risksense and many others.
