About Louisiana

Louisiana belongs in the country’s Deep South and South Central regions. The state is characterized by its closeness to the Gulf of Mexico and the Mississippi River. As a result, Louisiana has an urban multicultural, multilingual heritage and environment. Baton Rouge is the state’s capital, and New Orleans is Louisiana’s largest city.

Louisiana’s economy has struggled in recent years with a negative growth rate that ranks it 48th among all the 50 states. However, Louisiana is one of the most small-business-friendly states. It also has a diversified economy that relies heavily on abundant natural gas and oil besides agriculture and manufacturing.
