Loren Hill, #CarolinaCore Regional Economic Development Director for the @ptpNC, was a guest speaker at the @FacilitiesEng (Chapter 23) meeting last week at @Herbalife in Winston-Salem where he spoke about continuing momentum in the Carolina Core.

We are not slowing down!

.@EDPNC says NC is at the forefront of #cleanenergy transformation, which could mean more jobs & capital investment, particularly from companies driving this initiative like @VinFastUS & @Toyota, who have already pledged facilities in the #CarolinaCore.

.@bizfacilities has named NC the 2022 State of the Year for the second time since 2020!

The state ranked first for Best Business Climate and in the top five for Tech Talent Pipeline and Foreign Direct Investment/Capital Investment. #CarolinaCore #econdev
