Study gives SD high marks for business climate
– By Rapid City Chamber
PIERRE -- A recent study has ranked South Dakota as the fourth best state in the nation for its efforts to create favorable conditions for business growth and job creation.
The Praxis Strategy Group conducted the study in partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
Gov. Dennis Daugaard says it reaffirms that the state's focus on economic development is one of the best ways to recover from the lagging national economy.
The study ranked South Dakota first for its business tax climate and small business survival, second for productivity growth and third for its gross state product growth.
Daugaard says he's pleased the state's positive business climate is being recognized nationally.
