Area Development Online released their fourth annual “Top 10 States for Doing Business.” Georgia was ranked #2, while Texas maintained its #1 ranking.The states were ranked on factors in the following categories: Business Environment, Labor Climate, Infrastructure and Global Access.

Reasons for Georgia to be at the top of the list were due to the state’s sound economic practices, an extensive transportation and logistical infrastructure (which include Hartsfield Int’l Airport and the deep-water ports and barge terminals), and the quality and cost of labor in Georgia. Georgia also has thirty Fortune 500 companies and their headquarters located here.

Here are the top ten states for doing business in 2013:

1. TEXAS

2. GEORGIA

3. SOUTH CAROLINA

4. ALABAMA
