Bookmark and Share

South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard says the state agency in charge of economic development helped new and expanding businesses create an estimated 3,000 jobs last year.
 
Daugaard says the Governor's Office of Economic Development helped 61 businesses establish themselves or expand in South Dakota during 2011. He says most of those businesses were companies already established in the state.
 
The governor says the agency also provided grants to companies that helped train their workers in new skills.
 
State Economic Development Commissioner J. Pat Costello says companies need to recruit or retrain workers. He says many of the workers who went through training increased their earning potential.
