Pence leads job-hunting trip to high-tax New York City

Gov. Mike Pence led a delegation of 14 Hoosiers on a jobs and economic development mission to New York City, promoting Indiana’s strong private sector job growth, the recent passage of more tax cuts and the state’s pro-business climate to company prospects, site selection consultants and developers.

“If New York is the city that never sleeps, then Indiana must be the state that never ceases its pursuit of job opportunities for Hoosiers,” Pence said. “While here, we are shouting Indiana’s story from the soaring rooftops — a story of a state that works for growing a business, finding a job or chasing your dreams.”

The Indiana delegation is holding a series of business meetings with location advisors and company executives with site selection responsibilities to discuss the possibilities of relocating or growing operations in Indiana. The state will also host a special business recruitment event at Yankee Stadium.

In addition to Pence, Indiana is represented on this job hunting trip by Secretary of Commerce Victor Smith and Indiana Economic Development Corp. president Eric Doden.

This is the eighth consecutive year that Indiana has sent a Hoosier delegation to New York City to meet with prospective companies and location consultants.

Pence said Indiana continues to work purposefully to create a productive, pro-business, low-tax environment — from smart policies to reasonable regulation to a strong infrastructure.

Ranked sixth nationally and first in the Midwest in Chief Executive magazine’s annual survey of “Best and Worst States For Business,” Indiana has moved up 10 positions in four years. New York has ranked in the bottom two for nine consecutive years.

The job hunting mission to New York comes amid the IEDC’s targeted marketing campaign in high-tax states, including New York, Illinois, New Jersey, Massachusetts and California.

In January, Pence invited New York businesses to move to Indiana in a full-page advertisement in The New York Times, followed by digital billboard ads that ran in six high-traffic locations near MetLife Stadium in the run-up to Super Bowl XLVIII.

In addition, the IEDC took center stage in Times Square, one of the world’s most popular advertising venues, in two 15-second advertisements on the CBS Super Screen last year. The IEDC re-launched these advertisements in Times Square at the beginning of April, running the ads until mid-June.
