Daniels lauds Indiana’s economic environment

In a speech to the Economic Club of Indiana today at the Indianapolis Convention Center, Governor Mitch Daniels touted what he says is Indiana’s welcoming business environment and the diversification it has brought to the state.

Daniels told the eleven hundred in attendance about Indiana’s shifting economy and growing share of the auto, bio-tech and energy markets.

But he also reminded them that for Indiana to keep growing economically it must continue to find ways to seek out, help and encourage unique individuals and companies.

“Harder to get ones hands on, but essential to concentrate on are those dynamic, unpredictable businesses that spring from the genius of free people when enabled and encouraged to start new enterprises and try new ideas.”

Daniels received raucous applause when he finished by admonishing other states for raising taxes in the current economic environment and declared Indiana to be the best state in America for business.

“It is our goal.  It is our ambition.  That Indiana and the young Hoosiers coming up have every economic opportunity possible.  That there is no better place for the existing, or the new business, anywhere in America because we know there are no more deserving people.  No more deserving workers of the future then the young people we are raising right here.”
