27 Dec 2022
FRANKFORT, Ky. — Gov. Andy Beshear announced this year’s books have officially closed on another successful year of economic growth in Kentucky, concluding the best two-year period for announced private-sector investment and job creation in state history.
This year, 248 private-sector new-location and expansion projects committed to investing nearly $10.5 billion and creating 16,000 full-time jobs. Those figures position 2022 as Kentucky’s second-highest year for new investment, behind 2021’s record year.
