Several factors were attributed to business booming between North Carolina’s Southeast, an economic development partnership, and international firms from nations such as Australia, China, and South Africa. Among the factors were its waterways, such as Wilmington’s seaport; advantageous infrastructure, such as highway connectivity; military members that are also viewed as lucrative potential employees; comparatively lower costs, such as corporate tax rate.

Abstract:
Responding to the trend of health consciousness was Winston-Salem’s Primo Water Company. Part of its profile was company-related challenges, such as a decrease of retailers to promote its products. Encouraging a continuation of services were statistics, such as number of individual water bottles saved when Primo jugs were used an average of 40 times. Also inciting service continuation was a reminder about the 2016 Flint, Michigan water crisis and harmful chemicals that may be still present in everyday tap water.

Abstract:
What a Greenville business executive could contribute more to the UNC system’s Board of Governors and the UNC System’s 17 universities is his value of efficiency. How he has displayed efficiency is through supporting the consolidation of state controlled ECU Physicians Group and Vidant Medical Group. How he can display efficiency is through the passage of two initiatives. One is moving consolidating the UNC system’s offices into one building. Another is the UNC system handling the financial parts of all system campuses instead of each campus operating independently. It is through such initiatives that Harry Smith’s hope of better controlling UNC system tuition and fees may be realized.

Abstract:
Senate president Calvin Graves’ conclusion, that North Carolina needed railroads, brought a better connection between the state’s crop producing west and machinery producing east. Results were the founding of cities such as Burlington and creation of conduits for ports such Wilmington’s. The irony behind this beginning is Grave’s concluded political career in his home county and relative anonymity today. Currently, only a highway marker in Yanceyville recognizes his role in the growth of North Carolina’s manufacturing industries’ muscle.

Success on a global scale can be measured in Hickory Furniture Mart’s attracting visitors from Asia, the Middle East, and Europe and drawing 500,000 visits annually.
