All Roads Lead to Texas
In February 2019, TxEDC conducted a domestic business mission in California to tout Texas’ business advantages to California executives.
TxEDC led this mission in partnership with the Office of Governor Greg Abbott in order to carry the message that companies can “Go Big in Texas” among an audience of corporate executives, site selectors and others involved in expanding and relocating businesses.
“Texas has a strong track record of attracting companies from California to expand or relocate to Texas,” said Robert Allen, President and CEO of Texas Economic Development Corporation. “Our business-friendly climate, overall lower cost of living, and skilled workforce are just some of the factors that appeal to companies like Toyota, Apple, Google, LiveOps, and Oracle, which have expanded in Texas since 2014.”
