Panel at the Forum

NC Coalition for Global Competitiveness

We want the world to recognize and know North Carolina as a great place to invest, work, study, visit, partner, and live. Working with top business, government and education leaders, we formed the NC Coalition for Global Competitiveness in 2013. This innovative public/private partnership created the first-in-the-nation statewide Blueprint for Global Engagement to strategically strengthen North Carolina’s global connections. We’re stronger together.
