North Carolina’s explosive growth is well-documented. However, economic opportunities exist at an uneven rate throughout many NC communities. For example, many counties are experiencing job loss and population decline as individuals continue to migrate to economic centers.
In response, the North Carolina Chamber Foundation has released Spreading Economic Opportunity Across North Carolina, a report detailing ways to spur economic development in all corners of our state.
Our Foundation believes that the public and private sectors can collaborate to turn the unique strengths of our communities into opportunities to secure our competitive statewide future. The time to act is now.
