Phil Bryant, other governors woo Japanese businessmen during annual Southeast U.S. – Japan meeting

Translators were kept busy, but the message to Japanese businessmen from Missisippi Gov. Phil Bryant and two of his southeast counterparts was clear.

We want you here.

Bryant, along with fellow Govs. Rick Scott of Florida and Bill Haslam of Tennessee, welcomed delegates to the 36th annual Joint Meeting of the Southeast U.S. – Japan and Japan – U.S. Southeast Associations Monday.

This year was Mississippi’s turn in the rotation to host the event, so Bryant brought it to the Beau Rivage in Biloxi.
