Economic Development

Texarkana is the Northeast Texas and Southwest Arkansas center for business in the region. Texarkana continues to shine as a retail, transportation, medical, manufacturing, educational, and residential hub for the region. The pro-business community thrives with the ‘buzz’ of business while growing a cultural lifestyle attractive to businesses and workers of all ages. With a history of prosperous economic development, the area continues its transportation heritage of a convergence of railroads and now highways to move goods and citizens throughout the south and midwest. It has a history of attracting residents, businesses and workers who tend to remain in the region..Why? Because it is a great place to be!!
