We hope you are staying healthy and safe during this pandemic. These are difficult times for so many, and Missouri is on the front lines of protecting our residents and using our strong health innovation ecosystem to help in the global fight against COVID-19. Our team is currently working from our homes across the state. We are actively supporting ongoing economic development projects while also assisting the Missouri Department of Economic Development with their proactive support for businesses across Missouri.
What this means for you is that Missouri is still open for business. While the State of Missouri is focused on the pandemic response, our team is still fully available and continues to work with companies that are pursuing their next U.S. expansion location. Due to CDC recommendations on social distancing and the restrictions on meetings being placed on employees by many companies and organizations, most of our meetings and informational gatherings are now via conference call or video conference. This ensures that all of the necessary individuals are available in order to provide the information needed to move an expansion forward.
The Missouri team remains fully accessible to you during this difficult time. We look forward to working with you in the near future to support your projects, your companies, and you.
