Objective: There are currently more than nine million people living in North Carolina. By 2030, the population is expected to grow to 12 million, making North Carolina the seventh most populated state in the nation. This growth brings many opportunities, but it begs the question: Are we ready…

The North Carolina Chamber believes transportation is business. The rate and efficiency at which goods move is critical to meeting the current and growing demands of a dynamic state economy and ensuring that North Carolina is not only competitive with its neighbors but also in the global market place.  Therefore, the state must develop and implement comprehensive sustainable, long-term solutions to meet the transportation and infrastructure needs that exist now but also those that will come with the projected business and population growth Failure to address these critical components will have a detrimental and long-lasting negative impact on the state’s economy and ability to retain current investments and attract new jobs, new investments and expansions.

Sufficient physical infrastructure, including transportation, water and sewer, energy and broadband, to meet future demand is required for good jobs and a secure future. Register to join the North Carolina Chamber as we discuss how economic growth, safety and quality of life improvements are interconnected and dependent on investments in infrastructure.
