From the Rome News-Tribune:
In 2005, 182 companies announced new locations or expansions in Georgia that are expected to create 15,902 new jobs in the state, the governor’s office reported last week.
The job creation is a 35 percent increase from business and industry announcements during the year before. The Department of Economic Development also saw the dollar amount of investment increase by 30 percent for 2005, to a total of $2.68 billion in investments.
Here’s hoping that trend continues in 2006.
