WASHINGTON D.C. (WYMT/GRAY NEWS) - Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin is in Washington D.C. participating in the SelectUSA Investment Summit.
Governor Bevin joined Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb on stage for a panel discussion earlier this week.
Businesses and investors from around the world attended the summit.
In an interview Wednesday, Bevin praised Kentucky's large manufacturing industry.
"If you think of a state in America that most embodies manufacturing and engineering excellence it is Kentucky. We have 50 percent more people working in manufacturing in Kentucky than does the average state. It is something that we do and do well," said Bevin.
The governor also mentioned several college programs in Kentucky that focus on engineering as well as research and development.
