Event: partnerships promote rural jobs
The recent Manufacturing Summit at Mississippi State University highlighted the importance of communities working across county lines to bring jobs to rural regions of the state.
Earl Gohl, federal co-chairman of the Appalachian Regional Commission, was one of the participants in a panel discussion at the March 27 event at MSU’s Franklin Furniture Institute.
“People need to realize that their competition (for new industries) is not with the county next door; it is from across the ocean,” Gohl said.
