The board of directors of the East Mississippi Business Development Corporation Thursday discussed the ongoing mission to lure Hyundai suppliers to Lauderdale County.
President Wade Jones met Wednesday with the Mississippi Development Authority. He said all prospects are looking for a location near an interstate highway.
"But while our location is a strength we also have to make sure that we can work through the just in time inventory issues which require that the suppliers have their product, their finished goods, to the assembly plants in a very timely manner," said Jones.
In other business, Navy Meridian Team member Lamar McDonald told the group the next BRAC commission would be appointed solely by the president. Previously, congress also had input.
