WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Gov. Pat McCrory is scheduled to make his first visit of 2014 to Wilmington today.

An aide says the governor will tour the State Port of Wilmington. Other specifics about the governor’s visit are not yet available.

Friday, the North Carolina Economic Development Board, which is made up of business leaders, educators and elected officials, gave McCrory what’s billed as a road map for the state’s economic prosperity for the next decade.

The report calls for integrating port competitiveness into the state’s 25-year infrastructure plan as one component to improving the infrastructure to rural communities.

Gov. McCrory last visited our area in October to kick off manufacturing day across the state.
