Business in Utah 2017

Business in Utah is Utah’s annual economic development publication produced in conjunction with the Governor’s Office of Economic Development.

Utah has ranked no. 1 for economic outlook every year since 2008. Have you ever wondered how the Beehive State does it? We adhere to the conservative principles and fundamentals of economic success: low and consistent tax rates; fewer and more sensible regulations; limited and more efficient government; saving for a rainy day; respecting free markets and empowering the private sector to create jobs.

Business in Utah magazine, an official publication of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED), provides an in-depth look at these fundamentals in action. Stories cover successful public-private partnerships and exciting growth areas, as well as informative highlights and helpful how-to’s. Whether you already live and work here or you are looking for new possibilities, you’ll find Utah continues to be rich with opportunity.

Our state is full of bright thinkers, collaborators and problem-solvers. In this magazine, you’ll find insights from some of our best. We hope to show you that Utah is where you’ll find a superior business climate and a high quality of life.

With a powerful spirit of innovation and strong commitment to collaboration, Utah’s economic growth shows no signs of losing momentum. Together, we’ll ensure sustainable growth and opportunities for generations to come.

To our Utah readers, thank you for your important contributions to our state’s thriving economy. To our out-of-state friends: it’s high time you plan a visit to Utah. We welcome you to experience “Life Elevated” for yourself.
