“The 16 States that make up the southern region of the United States form an incredibly important economic region. The Southern States Business Coalition brings globally recognized businesses and their leaders to the south so that they can gain exposure to the wealth of business opportunities that the south and its companies can offer”.

Florida; Georgia; South Carolina; North Carolina; Virginia; West Virginia; Maryland; DC; Louisiana; Alabama; Texas; Mississippi; Oklahoma; Arkansas; Tennessee; Kentucky
