Provo-Orem tops nation in new Best Performing Cities report
Friday, March 22, 2019
SALT LAKE CITY — A new national report cites Utah's pro-growth calling cards — namely "a dynamic high-tech sector, educated workforce and business-friendly tax and regulatory climate" — as the factors behind the Provo-Orem area earning the No. 1 ranking among the nation's best performing metros.
And it's the second year in a row that the area has occupied the top spot in Milken Institute's annual Best Performing Cities report. Other Utah cities that made the list include Salt Lake City, repeating its 2017 No. 10 ranking and Ogden-Clearfield, which moved up seven places this year to earn the No. 21 slot.
