New Secretary Of Commerce Visits Dillon Couty

The Dillon and Marion Economic Development Partnership held a drop-in on Tuesday, Feb. 8, at 6:30 p.m. at the Abingdon Manor in Latta to get acquainted with our new South Carolina Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt.
Everyone had an opportunity to meet and greet each other and explain to the secretary what each county had to offer.
Executive Director of the Dillon Economic Development Partnership stated, “It was honor and privilege to have the Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt in the Pee Dee area. We look forward to working with him. We also welcome his leadership.”
Rodney Berry, Executive Director of Marion County Economic Development Commission stated, “Everything in today’s economic development climate is regional. Marion and Dillon County’s joint gathering hosting the Commerce Secretary Bobby Hitt sends a compelling message that the counties understand and align with the State’s vision. Having the Secretary here only 14 days after his Senate confirmation is a huge deal for Marion and Dillon County. His departing comments to me were that he was impressed and looks forward to working with us.”
