Repositioning the Charlotte Region
as a Global Hub for International Trade

As the world marketplace gets better connected and more competitive, the Charlotte region seeks to participate aggressively for business, jobs and wealth in the global economy. Building upon its assets as well as a preponderance of synergistic economic factors, Charlotte is poised for its next great economic growth cycle.


Charlotte’s future begins with a clear and focused vision:

“To reposition Charlotte as the most integrated global hub for international trade on the east coast of the United States.”

What does that mean for you? Increased commerce means greater prosperity for the region—

more business, more jobs, more wealth, more innovation, more opportunities for all!
