Pima, Tucson called business magnets
An economic-development magazine has named Pima County the top mid-sized county in the nation in a new top-20 list of areas for business recruitment and attraction.
The city of Tucson placed fifth among mid-sized cities, Phoenix was first among large cities and Arizona won top honors among the states in the inaugural rankings by Expansion Management magazine.
The Cleveland-based magazine, which reports a circulation of 45,000, said it based the rankings on the rate at which businesses relocated to a market and opened branch offices in a market.
