State of Texas

News Release
Thursday, March 08, 2018

AUSTIN - Governor Greg Abbott today joined business leaders from across the state at the Texas Governor's Mansion to accept Site Selection Magazine’s 2017 Governor's Cup, an annual award that recognizes the top-performing states for business and job creation. The 2017 Governor’s Cup is a record-breaking sixth in a row for Texas and the 14th overall win, more than any other state.


“I am tremendously proud of our state for continuing a tradition of excellence and winning this award for the sixth year in a row,” said Governor Abbott. “Our highly skilled workforce and the entrepreneurs and innovators who call Texas home are keys to Texas’ success. Job creators across this state play a crucial role in helping Texas maintain our status as a place where people can look to for freedom and limitless opportunity.”


Site Selection Magazine publishes information for expansion-planning decision-makers — CEOs, corporate real estate executives and facility planners, human resource managers and consultants to corporations. It has awarded the Governor’s Cup annually since 1978, based on new and expanded corporate facilities as tracked by the proprietary Conway Projects Database.
