Promoting WV tourism and livability
Showcasing the best of West Virginia, from its unique assets to livability to vast tourism industry, can bolster economic development and the state’s image as a place where people want to launch a business, start a career, go to college, buy a second home or retire.
West Virginia’s loyal, low-cost workforce with low turnover rates, positive tax environment and strong business climate, central geographical location near most eastern U.S. markets and stunning natural beauty serve as unique assets that can attract new businesses, prospective investors, individuals and families to the Mountain State.
While these factors brand West Virginia as a desirable location, businesses increasingly recognize that the livability and quality of life of a community are equally influential in location decisions, impacting the attraction and retention of talent and knowledge workers.
