The State of Louisiana has been recognized as a national leader in economic development.  An abundance of natural resources, a dedicated workforce, a strategic location and a pro-business attitude are just a few of the reasons Louisiana has vaulted to the top of the national rankings when it comes to economic development. Whether you're contemplating relocating your company to Louisiana, expanding an existing Louisiana company or starting a brand new company, Louisiana has a variety of economic development programs designed to give you a competitive advantage.
