Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders met with African American business leaders on Wednesday to celebrate Black History Month and to "reaffirm her commitment to make Arkansas one of the best places in the nation to start and grow a business."
According to Sanders' spokeswoman Alexa Henning, the governor met with various Black business leaders from across the state, Secretary of Transformation and Shared Services Joseph Wood, and Secretary of Labor and Licensing Daryl Bassett.
"The Governor thanked the group for their leadership in growing Arkansas' economy, and shared her vision to build a skilled, qualified workforce through her new Career Ready Pathways program in Arkansas LEARNS that will partner local businesses with high schools to prepare students for the workforce," Henning said in a statement.
She also said Sanders reiterated her commitment to shrinking the size and scope of government to help business thrive.
"The business leaders expressed their concerns about inflation and higher interest rates hindering their ability to grow and expand, as well as their desire to help mentor other business owners along a path to success," Henning said.
