Competition for Kia Growing

The news does not appear to be as good for Meridian to land an automobile plant as it once did.

There is word from a Korean newspaper that Georgia is the front-runner for a Kia plant.

That Korean newspaper quoted a top official with the company, saying Georgia is offering the best incentives to lure Kia, and another state will have to up the ante to land the plant.

That plant could employ up to 2,500 people.
