North Carolina Commerce Secretary Sharon Decker and the heads of the state’s three urban regional development partnerships plan to visit New York City next month to meet with site-selection consultants and journalists.
The event is the first in what is expected to be a series of outreach efforts by Decker and the presidents of the Charlotte Regional Partnership, Piedmont Triad Partnership and the Research Triangle Regional Partnership. The goal is to tout the economic assets of the three metro areas and how they can help fast-growing businesses.
“The high-wage jobs and high-dollar investments that power our major metro areas are the fuel for North Carolina’s overall economic revival – moving the needle for us in the near-term as we reconsider the longer-range infrastructure and workforce needs of our state,” Decker said in a statement.
The first event is scheduled for Nov. 14.
