Site Selection magazine’s annual Governor’s Cup rankings placed Kentucky fourth in the nation for new and expanded industry activity per capita in 2013. The ranking is based on a state’s total number of qualified projects.  To be considered as a qualified project it must involve an investment of at least $1million, create 50 or more jobs or add at least 20,000 new feet of floor space.

“This is another strong showing for Kentucky’s economic development activity during 2013,” said Governor Steve Beshear.

In Metro City rankings, Bowling Green came in  at #6 in the tier three category.

During 2013, Kentucky generated 163 projects that met the Site Selection criteria requirements. In total, 281 location or expansion announcements were reported in Kentucky, resulting in 14,058 projected new full-time jobs. Capital investment is estimated at nearly $3.3 billion.
