JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Gov. Eric Greitens said his administration is overhauling the state's jobs training program and creating a customer service platform targeted at economic development.

Greitens in a Friday announcement said the initiatives are aimed at strengthening the economy and growing jobs.

The Department of Economic Development is launching what's called the Skilled Workforce Missouri program. A release from the agency says its website will connect businesses with training for workers and recruitment tools.

The agency also is unveiling what it describes as a statewide customer service platform for economic development help. The aim is to help local and state developers target businesses considering expanding in the state.
