Metro Atlanta, Georgia is an outstanding place to live and work. It is home to nearly five million people and approximately 130,000 businesses. As the 4th fastest growing state in the US, its vibrant economic growth attracts hundreds of companies and thousands of job seekers annually. In fact, Metro Atlanta has drawn more newcomers to the area than any other metro in the nation. KPMG's 2006 Competitive Alternatives study ranks Atlanta as the least-costly place to do business among 23 cities with populations over 1.5 million. Combined with high employment opportunities and a strong, diverse industry base will ensure Atlanta's continued record-setting growth.
Located in the geographic center of the Southeast, the area is the nation’s 9th largest metropolitan area and home to the world’s busiest passenger airport. As a premiere destination hub, Atlanta is a regional, national and global center for business operations of all kinds- from headquarters to life sciences, distribution centers and traditional manufacturing, to banking, commercial investment companies, conventions and entertainment and entrepreneurial companies. Atlanta is also one of the top cities with the most Fortune 500 company headquarters, ranking #3 in 2005 with 14, including The Home Depot and The Coca-Cola Company. The city was recently ranked #3 by Expansion Management Magazine as one of America’s 50 Hottest Cities for Business Expansion and Relocation. With an extensive infrastructure of support systems to assist new and expanding businesses, Georgia offers an unparalleled combination of the Southeast’s most extensive rail system, the largest container seaport in the United States, telecommunications hub and five major interstate highways. Georgia is the fifth-best state in the country to do business, according to a survey of 339 of the nation’s top CEOs.
“Georgia offers companies access to the world. Our ports, rails, highways are first-class. Our research universities are on the cutting edge. And our quality of life is second to none,” states Sam A. Williams, president of the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce. “Combine that with the fact that the Southeast as a whole is the fastest growing region of the country, and companies and investors see the clear advantage of doing business in Georgia—the nerve center of it all.”
