Kentucky is experiencing unprecedented economic momentum, as Gov. Andy Beshear announced this year’s private-sector new-location and expansion projects have exceeded $10 billion in new investments for the first time in the commonwealth’s history with more than 15,200 full-time jobs announced.
“This is a monumental achievement for our state that represents months of dedication from local and state economic development leaders and businesses across Kentucky who continue to further their commitment to the commonwealth and our residents,” Gov. Beshear said. “This has been an incredible year for economic growth in Kentucky, but we are just getting started. It is my goal to ensure a better future that includes an opportunity for every Kentuckian to earn a quality job with a strong wage. Thank you to every company and every individual in our state who has helped us reach this point.”
