ATLANTA – The state of Georgia has officially delivered their proposal to Amazon in hopes of landing their second headquarters somewhere in the state. 

Georgia and the metro Atlanta area are just one of dozens of other cities and regions trying to win what Amazon calls HQ2.

The online retail giant could bring with it $5 billion in investments along with 50,000 jobs.

Late Thursday afternoon, the state posted a video one their YouTube channel showing them delivering their pitch the mega company. 

Georgia’s Office of Economic Development is keeping quiet about the state’s bid, though other regions have given hints about what they’re offering, including big tax incentives.

Amazon said it’s looking for certain things from its new HQ2 location, including a large metropolitan area with more than 1 million people, access to mass transit, a business-friendly environment and an international airport within 45 minutes of its new headquarters.

State leaders believe Metro Atlanta fits that bill.
