In May, Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson and other officials toured the newly renovated Tian Yuan Garments facility in Little Rock. Tian Yuan is one of several Chinese companies that have recently found a home in Arkansas, where costs of doing business are low and access to national and international markets is high.
“We welcome textile jobs back to Arkansas,” said Hutchinson. “The amount of direct foreign investment into the state is getting international attention right now. We still make things in Arkansas, and our workforce is prepared to handle manufacturing of all kinds. We’re thrilled to see the additional investment.”
