The Mississippi Major Economic Impact Authority will present an incentive package for a large economic development project in the Golden Triangle at a special session of the Mississippi State Legislature Wednesday in Jackson.
The project is expected to include a $2.5 billion initial investment and create more than 1,000 jobs with an average annual salary of $93,000, according to a tweet posted by Governor Tate Reeves on Monday.
Golden Triangle Development LINK representatives Chief Executive Officer Joe Max Higgins, Chief Operating Officer Meryl Fisackerly and Vice President of Economic Development Betsy Young will attend the session Wednesday.
“The LINK is excited to be part of this historical event and, as always, appreciates the support of our team and partners,” Fisackerly said in a press release issued Monday.
