Gov. Phil Bryant participated in President Trump's “Made in America” week by highlighting on social media one Mississippi company each day that exemplifies the “Made in America” spirit by manufacturing products in Mississippi and the United States. “Made in America” week was proclaimed by President Donald J. Trump on Monday, July 17 to honor and showcase workers and companies who make “Made in America” the world standard for quality and craftsmanship.

Additionally, President Trump hosted an event at the White House on Monday to celebrate American-made products and encouraging other companies to manufacture their products in the United States.

“Mississippi’s business-friendly environment and our commitment to providing companies an atmosphere where they can not only do business, but thrive, has produced results time and again,” Gov. Bryant said. “We appreciate the companies that choose Mississippi, and we will continue working with our partners to demonstrate why this state is a great place to call home. Our workforce proves each day why ‘Made in America, perfected in Mississippi’ is true. I look forward to highlighting some of our great companies in Mississippi this week.”

"I'm proud to be hosting so many incredible American companies and featuring their products at the White House for the Made in America Showcase. Throughout our country's history, our gifted and skilled tradespeople have made 'Made in America' a gold standard for quality and craftsmanship, but for too long our government pushed aside their interests and allowed their jobs to be shipped overseas,” said President Trump. “My administration is committed to putting the hardworking men and women of this country - like the ones represented in the showcase - first again so that we can unleash the true potential of the American economy."
