Governor Tate Reeves has declared Monday, May 8 through Friday, May 12 as Mississippi Economic Development Week.
The proclamation from Reeves comes on the heels of a calendar year that saw a record $6 billion in economic development for Mississippi, including a $2.5 billion project in Lowndes County that has been dubbed as the state’s largest-ever.
“I encourage all citizens to recognize the contributions of economic development organizations and the importance of building and maintaining a robust economy,” Reeves wrote in the proclamation shared on social media.
