Overall Regional Round-Up
MEC traveled to 27 communities throughout the state, discussing opportunities for those communities and regions to help grow Mississippi’s economic competitiveness. During the Regional Round-Up meetings, which were sponsored by Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi, MEC focused on how the 9 regions across the state can work together to build on their strengths and how each region is vital in helping Mississippi grow and prosper.
MEC’s Regional Round-Up looked at region-specific economic drivers, as well as state-wide issues like transportation, healthcare, workforce, education and healthy communities. This regional approach to economic development is based on the four major goals of the Blueprint Mississippi initiative, which are:
- Economic Competitiveness
- Education Achievement & Workforce Development
- Resource Management
- Technology Commercialization
