Utah’s economy continues to lead the nation, benefiting EAO’s Utah Project
Utah’s booming economy, positive business environment and prudent fiscal leadership continue to keep the state at or near the top of national “Best of…” lists. The state’s solid economic foundation and pro-business, pro-energy climate is a great benefit that supports and adds value to Enefit’s Utah Project.
Forbes magazine recently named Utah #1 for the third straight year in its annual “Best States for Business” report. Utah also took top honors between 2010 and 2012.
U.S. News & World Report magazine ranks Utah #1 for job growth.
In another recent report, U.S. News ranked Utah seventh overall in a comparison of the strengths of all 50 states in seven different areas – economy, infrastructure, opportunity, health care, education, crime and government. Utah scored particularly well in the areas of economy (high growth in jobs and GDP, pro-business environment), infrastructure (transportation, internet access, low energy costs), higher education (graduation rate, low student debt, low tuition and fees), government (fiscal stability, credit rating, e-government).
And, the University of Utah’s Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute finds that Utah’s economic prosperity will keep growing throughout 2017, with continued strong increases expect in employment, population, construction and other key sectors.
