Business Summit

Area manufacturers gathered in Meridian for a business summit sponsored by the east Mississippi Business Development Corporation.

"Hopefully, as this group leaves here today they will realize that there are opportunities for incentives for them to expand their operations," said Wade Jones, president of the EMBDC. "They'll understand where we are on tort reform and how we can better build our relationship on the state level with organizations like the Mississippi Manufacturers Association."

The program included an overview of manufacturing in Mississippi, financial incentives for upgrading technology and physical expansions.
