Gov. Phil Bryant and state economic development officials are participating in the Walmart U.S. Manufacturing Summit today in Orlando, Fla.

More than 500 supplier companies, 32 states and major retail industry leaders are also participating.

The summit will focus on manufacturing and supply chains in the U.S. and on Walmart’s 10-year commitment to buy more “Made in the USA” products.

Gov. Bryant will participate in a panel to discuss the importance of U.S. manufacturing for states and the state of Mississippi’s role in that renewal.
