Governor’s spokesman Sam Murphy said that the governor wants to see more and more come to northeast Missouri.
Murphy said, “We just continue to see a very strong series of signals from across northeast Missouri — that it is a place where businesses want to invest, where they want to create jobs, and where they want to get our economy growing. Governor Nixon is going to continue to push each and everyday to make northeast Missouri a place where businesses want to create jobs and grow the economy of the future.”
That’s why Nixon and David Kerr, director of the Missouri Department of Economic Development, will be here to present the initial recommendations of the Missouri Strategic Initiative for Economic Growth, which is formulating a five-year economic plan for the Show-Me State. They’ll talk about the initiative’s major strategies for creating jobs in high-growth industries and outline the next steps in the planning process.
