MEC TOUR

Securing Mississippi's Future

Vicksburg
Greenwood
Tupelo

The MEC Tour was made possible thanks to a generous sponsorship from:

In early 2022, MEC released the “Securing Mississippi’s Future: Vision for Economic Growth” report, incorporating findings from 51 focus-group style meetings conducted in communities across all regions of Mississippi, an online, quantitative survey, and other research.

The report identified a “lack of qualified workers” as the number one concern of businesses across Mississippi. Other issues of concern included the state’s approach to promoting career awareness and readiness; Mississippi’s ability to retain and attract workers; broadband and transportation infrastructure needs; general economic development and business climate concerns; and healthcare.

The 2022 MEC Tour discussed those and other important issues across Mississippi, attracting more than 1,200 attendees.
