On March 12, Governor Pete Ricketts received Site Selection Magazine’s “Governor’s Cup” for the second consecutive year. The prestigious award recognizes states that have demonstrated the most outstanding economic development achievements over the past year. Nebraska received the Cup for having the most capital investment projects per capita in the nation in 2017.
“On behalf of our state, I wish to express gratitude to Site Selection Magazine for once again recognizing Nebraska as one of the top states in the nation for business and capital investment,” said Governor Ricketts. “This is a testament to Nebraska’s world-class workforce and welcoming communities. Thank you to our team at the state and the community leaders, chambers, Ag associations, and numerous other partners working to grow Nebraska who brought this trophy home again.”
Site Selection is known as the senior publication in the corporate real estate and economic development fields, and its yearly analyses are regarded by experts as an industry scoreboard.
