Laurens County talks international economic development

DUBLIN, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – International economic developers visited Laurens County on Wednesday.  They spoke to city leaders and members of the county development authority to see what resources they have for potential foreign trade. 

Georgia’s economic development department has representatives from eleven markets overseas. They visit the state twice a year. 

“We’re proud to have them here. Dublin has had good track record when it comes to international investment. We continue to count on those folks to help us recruit international companies,” said the President of Dublin-Laurens County Development Authority, Brad Lofton.

Officials from the development authority hope to attract new business to the area with the new property they acquired. They purchased more than 300-acres of land at the intersection of GA Hwy 257 and US Hwy 441 Bypass. The land includes a rail-served site. This is the first time Laurens County can offer railroad connectivity to potential clients.
