Rural North Carolina Can Attract New Jobs

Record #:
In many rural North Carolina counties, jobs have been lost due to the downsizing of traditional rural industries like textiles, apparel and furniture, as well as from restructuring in agriculture. Despite the challenges, rural counties have the advantages of open land, lower costs, and a growing market for local farm products. There are also various strategies to increase development and jobs in rural areas of North Carolina.
