Dear Texas Economic Development Stakeholders,
Big news for the Lone Star State! In case you missed it, Texas was awarded the Governor's Cup for the 10th consecutive year from Site Selection Magazine. This award recognizes the Lone Star State's efforts in announcing the most corporate relocation and expansion projects among all other states in the country. See photos from this announcement below! Thanks to our community partners who we worked with on some great announcements in 2021. Also a big thank you to the companies who are choosing Texas for their new and expanded facilities!
And the wins keep coming! Texas was once again named the #1 state in the nation for exports—now for the 20th year in a row! In 2021, Texas exports were valued at more than $375 billion. The Lone Star State is also the top state for tech exports for the ninth year in a row (more on this below).
In the March Texas Business Bulletin, you will find the latest on Texas trade and export data, meet some of our new and returning team members, discover recent project announcements from across the state, and more!
