Lake Charles has earned the top spot for Small Market of the Year in the South for the fifth year in a row, according to the Southern Business & Development magazine.

The state of Louisiana was No. 1 in business development in the South for the 9th year in a row.

The rankings use data from 2016 and are decided by capital-investment projects and large job-creation projects across the region.

Louisiana had 57 projects of $30 million or more.

Tellurian's $11.8 billion LNG project in Calcasieu Parish is one of two liquefied natural gas projects topping the list of job-creating projects for the South.

Louisiana is one of the top-ranking states for business in multiple national economic development categories.
