Thursday, October 12 2017

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross announced that the Department’s Economic Development Administration (EDA) is awarding $30 million to support 35 projects in 15 states under the 2017 Assistance to Coal Communities (ACC 2017) initiative. The funding will assist locally-driven efforts to communities and regions severely impacted by the declining use of coal through activities and programs that support economic diversification, job creation, capital investment, workforce development and re-employment opportunities.
 
“From his first days in office, President Trump ended the Federal government’s assault on the coal industry and the communities who rely on it,” said Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross. “The previous administration fought this war through unilateral executive actions and regulatory edicts, and the casualties were American workers and families.”

Global manufacturing leader to build manufacturing facility in Berkeley County

Charleston, WV -- Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin today announced global consumer products giant Procter  & Gamble (P&G)  will build a new manufacturing plant in Berkeley County.  The new facility is just the second manufacturing location that P&G has  built in the United States since 1971 and represents an investment of approximately $500 million.

“Over the past 14 months, we’ve been working hand-in-hand with the team at Procter & Gamble to bring this type of investment to the Mountain State,” Gov. Tomblin said. “For years, we’ve worked to create a business climate that makes West Virginia a national and global competitor for new investments, and companies around the world are noticing the changes we’ve made. We are showing these major corporations that West Virginia is a good place to do business and the right place to make an investment.”
