Dear Friends and Partners,
Welcome to 2021! We all hope it will be an improvement from 2020. As you know, our team has the privilege of promoting Missouri to the world. Although 2020 provided several challenges, it also brought huge new investment and job creation across the state. 2020 also taught us how to continue providing an exceptionally high level of support to companies in new and virtual ways, and continue to stay connected, albeit at a distance.
It was a difficult year for many, and a year of change for most, but we got through it together, and I appreciate your partnership throughout 2020.
My vision for 2021 is for more Missouri, since Missouri is always more than you expect. Not more of 2020, but more of what makes our state one of the best in the USA.
Missouri delivers more than expected from companies, entrepreneurs, visitors and talent – in the heart of America. We are where adventure, natural beauty, diverse assets, global industry and affordability merge to create a place where people and businesses thrive. Our regulatory and tax environment makes us more pro-business and more affordable. Our logistics and transportation infrastructure, along with our friendly Midwestern attitude, makes us more connected and more global. Our quality of life gives you more living, more talent and more adventure.
Basically, you get more with Missouri – and we are proud to tell that to the world.
The team at Missouri Partnership will continue to promote the amazing state of Missouri and its strengths in multiple industries. We will continue to provide a high-quality concierge service to companies in order to show them why Missouri should be their next expansion location. And we will continue to focus on improving the lives of Missourians by attracting new jobs and investment that will impact entire families for generations.
It is an honor to represent Missouri’s business attraction efforts, and it is an honor to represent the incredible communities across our state. We look forward to working with all of our friends and partners across Missouri and around the world in 2021 and beyond.
