Foreign Investment Friendliness – PA Tops the List

The Pittsburgh Business Times recently reported that Pennsylvania has been recognized for its friendliness toward foreign investment.

According to the article, “A corporate organization promoting foreign investment has recognized Pennsylvania as an up-and-coming place for energy-intensive industries.
