About Northeast Georgia
The thirteen counties that comprise the Northeast region of Georgia are a haven for business and outdoor life. Bordered by two states and the Chattooga River in the east, Region 2 total employment is estimated at 276,461, with concentrations in manufacturing, construction, retail and wholesale trade, educational services and tourism.
Hall County will be home to the second Georgia Ports Authority inland port, which will provide a direct Norfolk Southern Railroad link from Region 2 to the Port of Savannah. The inland port is expected to open in 2021. The region is home to Fieldale Farms, NE GA Health System, Haring, Diana Food and many other domestic and international companies.
