Governor McMaster to Deliver Keynote Address at SC Aerospace Conference

Governor Henry McMaster to Deliver Keynote Address

As the 117th governor of South Carolina, Henry McMaster recognizes the impact of the aerospace industry and its importance to the economic future of the Palmetto State. Having performed decades of public service, McMaster is committed to keeping South Carolina right where it belongs – on top.

To do this, Governor McMaster is focused on making sure that the Palmetto State retains and builds upon its unmatched positive business environment. And, in just six short months as governor, the approach seems to be paying off. During that time, McMaster and his team have announced more than 50 economic development projects, bringing approximately 6,600 new jobs and $2.1 billion in capital investment to South Carolina.
