Mississippi’s aggressive efforts to create jobs and attract new investment produced significant results, with 2013 more than doubling the jobs and investment generated in the state in the previous year.
Projects supported by Mississippi Development Authority over the past year created 6,265 new jobs for the state’s workers and more than $1.03 billion in new investment. In 2012, state-assisted projects accounted for 2,664 new jobs and $455,560,000 in new investment.
“Since taking office, I have made improving Mississippi’s economy a top priority,” Gov.

This year has proven to be a strong year for economic development in Mississippi, and it shows that our economy is gaining strength.”
