“Virginia is a world leader in innovation and cloud computing, thanks to its investment in a robust, highly-skilled workforce and emphasis on long-term public and private partnerships. […] Since 2006, AWS has invested more than $35 billion in Virginia, boosting the Commonwealth’s total Gross Domestic Product by nearly $7 billion and supporting thousands of jobs annually. Building on these successful beginnings, we plan to invest an additional $35 billion in the Commonwealth of Virginia by 2040 and create 1,000 jobs.” […]

“With the highest concentration of tech talent in the U.S., Virginia boasts one of the largest data center workforces in the nation, an advantage that sets us apart and directly benefits an industry leader like AWS. […] We thank AWS for its commitment to the Commonwealth of Virginia and look forward to a continued partnership in the years to come.” […]

“I am pleased the MEI Commission could collaborate with our state and private-sector partners to ensure AWS selected the Commonwealth for this important project. […] The addition of multiple data center campuses will underscore Virginia’s position as the world’s largest data center market segment, and we thank AWS for its long-term commitment to the Commonwealth.”AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
