Dr. Glenn Boyce, Commissioner of Higher Education: The Mississippi Development Authority, the economic and community development agency for the state, has identified eight target industries that are an excellent fit for Mississippi's assets, human and natural resources, and business climate. These are the industries on which to focus our efforts to recruit, retain and grow. The eight industries include advanced manufacturing; aerospace; agribusiness; automotive; forestry and energy; healthcare; shipbuilding; and tourism and film. Mississippi Public Universities support these eight industries in numerous ways.
