JobsOhio ranks as the No. 3 state economic development organization in the country, according to a survey of U.S. corporate executives and site selection consultants released at the International Economic Development Council (IEDC) annual conference, JobsOhio said Monday.

“The recognition of JobsOhio as a ‘best in class’ economic development organization is a testament to our associates and partners, who are driven by our mission to attract jobs and investment to Ohio,” John Minor, JobsOhio president and chief investment officer, said in a release. “It is great to see the success of JobsOhio’s unique model, which takes a new approach to business development.”

Conducted by Development Counsellors International every three years, the survey has tracked trends in economic development since its inception in 1996.

In the survey, Ohio also was viewed as having the ninth best business climate among the 50 states, according to the JobsOhio release.
