State Officials Comment on Apple Site Selection

Today, Governor Cooper, Senate President Pro Tempore Phil Berger and House Speaker Tim Moore issued a statement regarding state economic recruitment following Apple’s announced expansion:

“North Carolina is a great place for business and we have amazing success bringing quality jobs to our state, from corporate headquarters for Charlotte and Raleigh to advanced manufacturing jobs for places like Halifax and Scotland counties. We’re on pace to add thousands of good-paying jobs this year with more expected next year. There’s no better place to find a top-tier IT workforce and legislative leaders have worked closely with the administration to attract large employers and technology companies like Apple. We’ll keep doing everything we can to bring more good jobs to North Carolina.”
