TEMPLE -- Forbes just released the Top 10 Economies in the country based off of a study done by the Milken Institute.
Killeen, Temple, Fort Hood made the list.
The area was listed as number 5 out of the 10 economies.
We talked with the Temple Chamber of Commerce President, Bourdon Wooten to learn more about how this area has become so successful.
"Fort Hood itself they provide some very, very, very well trained employees for companies in the area. People are very confident about the healthcare they will receive personally or for their employees with the presence of Scott and White. Our geographic location in Central Texas is very beneficial."
Wooten said these are the main three reasons but also says Texas itself is a great place for businesses.
