Indiana Attracts Global Companies

"Foreign firms' investments create Hoosier jobs," reads the headline in the Indianapolis Business Journal's "Indiana 100" supplement this weekend.

"State officials have rolled out the red carpet for foreign companies to invest in Indiana," writes Katie Mauer, "paving the way for those firms to announce plans for nearly 5,000 new jobs here in 2007 alone."

The report continues, "Overall, the biggest sources of those jobs are firms in the United Kingdom and Japan. Germany is a close third, employing a total of more than 26,000 Hoosiers and investing $8.7 billion in the state."
