Governor Phil Bryant has proven himself to be diligent in seizing energy-based economic growth opportunities for Mississippi. Because energy powers and propels the entire world, Governor Bryant knows that Mississippi must seek opportunities to attract energy-related investment, not only because the jobs in this industry pay about twice the private sector average, but also because energy supply growth is needed to accommodate a larger economy that employs more people and raises household incomes.

According to the Governor, “Energy is the lifeblood of our country, the soul of our economic development.” See his entire Governor’s Energy Summit welcome address below.
