Accelerating North Carolina’s Future
An Inside Look at the 2015 Future of North Carolina Forum Revealed
One of the fastest growing economies in the world and a competitive location along several major commerce routes give North Carolina a unique opportunity to achieve “super-state” status in the 21st Century. But with two million more residents expected to move to the state by 2030, it begs the question: Are We Ready? Do we have the necessary infrastructure in place? Enough clean water? And will job growth keep pace with the growth of our population?
If we hope to successfully manage our growth potential in North Carolina, our state must continue to attract top talent and world class companies while providing a high quality of life for residents across the state. To do that, North Carolina will need to remain ahead of other states in the global jobs race by continually reinforcing and revamping our competitive business climate. Job creation is essential and job creators like you hold the key to securing a future of strong growth.
