While North Carolina has realized tremendous success in economic development over the last decade, some parts of the state have fared better than others. The diverse economy of the urban corridor and the natural amenities of the State's western and coastal communities has yielded new residents, jobs, and development opportunities. Rural communities that once thrived on the business of agriculture or manufacturing have fared less well and continue to struggle with out-migration, business closings and reduced economic opportunities.
