Dear Texas Economic Development Stakeholders


Everything is bigger in Texas, and in September, Texas was the largest job creator in the nation! The Lone Star State added a total of 95,800 nonagricultural jobs over the month, marking job growth for 16 of the last 17 months. The leading industry for job growth was Leisure and Hospitality as travel and tourism continues to regain strength. The positive trend means Texas is moving closer to full pandemic job recovery, with a 92.2% job recovery rate as of September! Once again, Texas takes home another #1 ranking for its best-in-class business climate according to corporate executives, earning the top spot on Site Selection’s 2021 Executive Survey Business Climate Rankings. Thanks to the dedication of economic development professionals across the state, and the many companies that choose to grow and create jobs in Texas, the Lone Star State will continue to lead the nation in economic prosperity. As always, we welcome you to visit our website, follow us on social media, or reach out to a member of our team if we can be of any assistance. Thanks for all you do for the great state of Texas! -Adriana Cruz, Executive Director, Texas Economic Development & Tourism
