As the country begins to turn its focus on how best to get back to basics after the shutdown, President Donald Trump tapped some of Georgia’s economic brainpower to add its expertise to the bi-partisan Great American Economic Revival Industry Groups. These groups will help the White House chart a path forward for the country’s economy revival in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Included in these groups are leaders from Georgia-based Southern Company, Home Depot, Coca-Cola, UPS, Waffle House, Chick-fil-a and Inspire Brands.
U.S. Senator Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) said in a statement that President Trump is “absolutely right” to include multiple Georgia business leaders in charting the course for reopening the nation’s economy.
“It is time to start discussing how we will safely get America back to work,” Loeffler said in a press release. “Georgia is home to many businesses that are known worldwide as industry leaders. President Trump is absolutely right to take advantage of that expertise as his administration plans how to reopen our economy. These leaders will be able to provide valuable insight into how we can safely get employees back to work and bring the economy roaring back.”
