Governor Chris Sununu, Commissioner Caswell Statement on Amazon

Concord, NH – Today, Governor Chris Sununu and Department of Business and Economic Affairs Commissioner Taylor Caswell issued the following statements on Amazon:

"New Hampshire's groundbreaking proposal to recruit Amazon was the most comprehensive business marketing plan our State has ever produced," said Governor Chris Sununu. "While we always knew that our bid was considered a long shot, we are excited that it is already serving as a template for other businesses that now have New Hampshire on their radar. Our commitment to economic and workforce development is already yielding results. We will never stop emphasizing that New Hampshire is open for business, open for workers, and open for opportunity."

"We went through a collaborative process over the course of 5 weeks this fall to put together a brand new employer marketing strategy for Amazon, but the real value has been in putting that strategy to work on a daily basis with dozens of other companies," said Commissioner Taylor Caswell. "The Amazon experience has given New Hampshire a national soapbox for our message about our enterprise freedom, our low tax/small government environment, our highly educated workforce, and our unbeatable quality of life. We will continue to take that message to companies every day, and I guarantee many of those companies will join those already here who understand the value of locating their businesses here in the strongest economy in the northeastern United States."
