Big Apple Investment Trip

Representatives from the Mississippi Gulf Coast head to New York next week to meet with investment analysts and tourism officials. Harrison County Development Commission chief Mike Olivier says the purpose of the visit is to promote the coastal area.

He says coast officials share information with financial analysts who track the gambling industry. They also provide data on population, income growth, employment and other economic indicators.

Olivier says about 18 people from the Gulf Coast will participate in this year's trip.
