Fairbanks among top three ‘recession-busting’ locations
Area Development magazine named Fairbanks the No. 3 top “recession-busting” Metropolitan Statistical Area in the U.S. Contributing to this designation is anticipated growth in the construction industry with the All-Alaskan Gas Pipeline, a mini-boom in exports to Asia-Pacific companies and with the military at Fort Wainwright.
Area Development magazine is considered the leading executive magazine covering corporate site selection and relocation. There is little doubt that the passage of the All-Alaskan Gas Pipeline project by the state’s lawmakers this past legislative season is at the forefront of the analysis. The AAGP project is expected to create an explosion of jobs in the construction industry in the coming years.
The American Thinker predicts that the AAGP will create over 6,500 construction jobs and economically stimulate over 50,000 permanent jobs.
