Governor Bentley Returns From Paris Air Show


By Alabama News Network

Governor Robert Bentley just returned from a trip to the Paris Air Show.

He spent the week overseas trying to recruit business to Alabama.

Governor Bentley says he met with close to 25 companies during his time at the air show.

The main goal was to bring suppliers for the new Airbus assembly plant being built in Mobile. 

Governor Bentley said bringing jobs to Alabama is still his number one priority.

"I actually do but I can't talk about it until we work up the incentives and the packages and the programs with the companies. But there are a number of companies, major companies that are suppliers for Airbus that are coming to Alabama," said Governor Bentley.
