The proposed industrial megasite in Jefferson County is facing a megavote today when the Jefferson County Commission meets in a special session to consider initial funding.The $442,000 appropriation would provide start-up funds for seeking megasite certification for the project.
Commissioners should approve the funding and move forward with the project, which would put Jefferson County — and the region — in play as a location for a major automobile plant or other manufacturing facility.
According to a study by Younger Associates, a certified megasite in Jefferson County has the potential to create 4,900 jobs and generate more than $2.7 billion for the regional economy each year. [Knoxville News Sentinel]
Tennessee plans to open four offices abroad to help promote the state’s export business, with outposts in China, Mexico, German and the United Kingdom, Gov. Bill Haslam and the state Department of Economic and Community Development announced today.
Already, Tennessee industries export $30 billion worth of products annually, but that could grow substantially in the future with some assistance from the state, said Bill Hagerty, the department’s commissioner.
The initiative will be led by the department’s International Division, and it will be the first time since 1997 that the state has operated foreign offices “solely dedicated to advancing Tennessee exports,” the department said in an announcement. [The Tennessean]
