NC Competes: promote long-term job growth in global market
Let's talk about jobs. As you know, the fight for jobs is global, played at the highest level, and the competition is on our heels.
Our plan, "NC Competes," will promote long-term sustainable job growth and capital investment. It will encourage mid
and large scale manufacturing, because manufacturing is part of our DNA. It will leverage our university research advantage to attract venture capital and a new generation of entrepreneurs, as well as help retain North Carolina's home-grown talent.
This plan is based on a series of guiding principles--principles designed to grow North Carolina while protecting our taxpayers.
NC Competes recognizes the importance of economic strength in all regions but emphasizes support to areas of high unemployment. NC Competes will require strong financial safeguards to provide a positive return to state revenues.

Eliminate cumbersome and duplicative regulations
Every extra hoop that government makes a business jump through because of rules and regulations is an added expense for the business, leaving fewer resources for new hiring and other expansion. Right now, small business owners rate
North Carolina's regulatory climate among the worst in the nation. North Carolina must do more to eliminate cumbersome and duplicative regulations while streamlining government agencies to make services more responsive to businesses.
