Today we are taking a look back at Missouri’s plan to bring Amazon’s HQ2 to the Show-Me state.
In October, Missouri Governor Eric Greitens announced Missouri’s proposal encouraging Amazon to consider beginning HQ2 in either St. Louis or Kansas City, and then in the years ahead, expand along an innovation corridor to the second city. Access to an ultra-high-speed transportation system, such as hyperloop, would help accelerate Amazon’s growth and make this innovation corridor possible.
“Amazon is a company full of people who turn big ideas into reality,” Missouri Governor Eric Greitens said. “My team fully and equally supported the proposals submitted by our major metropolitan areas, Kansas City and St. Louis. We challenge Amazon to envision what it could achieve by partnering with us to unleash the combined strength of the entire state. We’d love to work with Amazon to build their new home here in Missouri.”
