Creating jobs for NC in the Global Economy

North Carolina is working to promote economic growth and stimulate job creation in the global economy. The bipartisan Committee on Global Engagement is working to make North Carolina the most globally engaged state in the nation. Rep. Grier Martin is a member of the committee, which began meeting last month. The Committee’s most recent meeting was held yesterday in Fayetteville and Fort Bragg. There, the committee learned that while North Carolina ranks 4th in the nation in the number of military personnel, it only ranks in the middle of the pack in the amount of defense contract dollars awarded. Finding ways to help North Carolina companies compete for these defense contracts can boost our economy and create more jobs in the state.
