Last quote by Roy Cooper

I think most North Carolinians believe we are moving in the right direction, but many of them know we still have more work to do. But I believe that North Carolina is a welcoming place and a great state to do business. We have taken enough important steps to signal to the world that we're open for business, and it's pretty clear that businesses are responding in a positive way.feedback
