In recent decades, North Carolina’s economy has experienced a dramatic transformation. A 20th-century economy that once relied on the “Big Three” – tobacco, textiles and furniture – has transitioned to become a 21st-century leader in pharmaceuticals, finance, food processing and high-tech manufacturing.
As we continue to build a more diverse economic portfolio, the North Carolina Chamber believes our state should use recent successes, like those achieved in our flourishing biotech industry, as models for what is possible when we get the right resources in place to capitalize on new opportunities to support the growth of further innovation. To that end, North Carolina Vision 2030 highlights Entrepreneurship & Innovation as one of the four “Pillars of a Secure Future” for North Carolina.
