“Georgia has been named the best state in the country in which to do business for six consecutive years, and without a doubt, the Georgia Chamber of Commerce plays a huge role in that success,” said Senator Perdue. “I personally want to thank President Chris Clark and the entire Chamber for their commitment to supporting our local communities and preserving the free-enterprise system that has driven this historic economic turnaround. By working together, we can continue fostering a business-friendly climate and attracting the country’s most successful companies to our state. I also want to thank Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao for joining us and for continuing to make Georgia’s infrastructure needs a priority.”

“It is critical to have elected officials who will make economic prosperity and competitiveness a top priority for Georgia, and Senator David Perdue does just that,” said Chris Clark, President and CEO of the Georgia Chamber. “It was an honor to present Senator Perdue with the Spirit of Enterprise Award on behalf of the U.S. Chamber. This prestigious award recognizes members of Congress for their support in pro-growth policies, and we were excited to recognize him for his positive impact on Georgia’s economy.”
