Abstract:
Biotechnology is the most coveted industry in the world, and competition to attract it is very high. For the past two years North Carolina has ranked third in the nation in biotechnology, trailing California and Massachusetts. Efforts to strengthen the state's industry are well underway. “Jobs Across North Carolina” is a strategic plan for spreading biotechnology statewide, and indications are that many of the plan's goals are being met. Goals include offering tax breaks and other economic incentives to bring new biomanufacturing businesses and help existing ones to expand. Maurer discusses a number of biotechnology operations throughout North Carolina.
