The economy in Vicksburg, MS is anchored in engineering. It holds the highest per capita ratio of engineers and PhD’s in the country and is considered the most progressive town in Mississippi. Vicksburg is home to the country’s top inland port, the Port of Vicksburg, where more than 20 businesses and 4,000 employees oversee importing and exporting of approximately 850,000 tons of freight each year.
Major industries here include research and development, manufacturing, hospitality, education, agriculture and retail. Guiding the area’s growth and development is the Vicksburg-Warren County Economic Development Foundation, which works to attract business and new industry. The EDF is a working arm of the Vicksburg Warren Count Chamber of Commerce.
