Missouri Wins 2017: Governor Greitens Announces 1,300 New Jobs

All month long Missouri Partnership is taking a look back at some of Missouri’s biggest stories in economic development from the past year. Today we are taking a look back at Governor Eric Greitens announcement of more than 1,300 new jobs in Missouri.

In September, Gov. Greitens announced that 15 businesses across the state were embarking on expansions that were expected to create 1,391 new jobs for Missouri families.

“It’s time for Missouri to do different in our approach to economic development. We are creating new jobs by putting our citizens first,” said Gov. Eric Greitens. “Since day one, our goal has been to get government out of the way so that companies can focus on doing what they do best—creating jobs. We’ve already seen results with more Missourians than ever earning a paycheck. Missouri’s economy is growing stronger, as are the businesses and families that call it home. This is just the beginning.”
