Mississippi has kept its doors wide open to international investors, aware that the southern state possesses many advantages that will attract a diverse range of industries, both traditional and advanced.
With his experience as a worker in the manufacturing sector and representing the northern half of Lee County, the most heavily industrialized part of the state, State Senator Chad McMahan is well-positioned to talk about why Mississippi is the ideal location for investment and new businesses.
“I want to be sure that the investments we are making in public education, artificial intelligence, and broadband internet will provide our young people the opportunity to have great career opportunities. I am so thankful for Japanese companies that are doing business here in Mississippi,” McMahan said.
Outlining the positive attributes of Mississippi, the state senator spoked about the hospitable nature of local residents, the affordability of land prices, the affordable cost of living, good weather all year, and the strong, capable workforce.
Despite the low cost of living, Mississippi has outperformed other states in terms of quality of life and worker productivity, according to McMahan, who pointed out the presence of Toyota’s manufacturing plant in Blue Springs, where the car maker is able to churn out more than a million car parts units faster than any other Toyota facility in the world.
McMahan also assured potential investors that Mississippi was a fruitful location for business because the local workforce is welcoming and hardworking, and him and his colleagues stay committed to invest every tax dollar work into the state and its public infrastructure and education system.
