Global Access.

Missouri sits at the center of North America, bordering eight states, allowing companies to reach customers via road, rail, water or air. The Missouri and Mississippi Rivers converge here, airports provide nonstop access to 70+ domestic and international destinations, and half the continental U.S. is within a day’s drive. Every US Class 1 railroad is here, allowing single line access to deep water ports in Mexico and everywhere in North America.

Minimal Regulations. Maximum Success.

Missouri has a 4 percent corporate tax rate, the third best corporate income tax index in the USA, and has held a AAA bond rating for more than 50 years. Missouri is low-risk, safe and stable.

Missouri is one of the most economically diverse states in the nation. And Missouri was the top choice for FDI into the U.S. in 2019.

Impressive Natural Beauty.

After a hard day’s work building the future of innovation and global business, Missouri’s workforce can simply open the front door and explore Missouri rivers, lakes, caves, or 91 state parks and historic sites. Or attend a Broadway-style show, visit a museum or see a live music performance in Branson. Missouri has an extensive microbrewery scene and is home to seven wine-producing regions. And Missouri is a sports haven with the championship-winning Kansas City Chiefs, St. Louis Cardinals, Kansas City Royals and St. Louis Blues.
