Business Climate

North Dakota ranked 5th highest on the Beacon Hill State Competitiveness Report 2005.  The Beacon Hill Institute at Suffolk University considers a state competitive if it has policies and conditions that ensure and sustain a high level of per capita income and its continued growth. To achieve this, a state must be able to attract and incubate new businesses as well as provide an environment that is conducive to the growth of existing firms.  For more information about this report, see http://www.beaconhill.org/Compete05/FinalCompete05-060921.pdf.  For more information about North Dakotaís business climate, select one of the links below.
