A novel idea

and one which former Governor Hunt used to great success during his first term when the textile industries were on the demise.

He recruited foriegn business, primarily from Germany and Japan, to relocate a portion of their industry to the textile towns on the demise.

He saw a coordination of community college training with the needs of the relocating businesses.

It worked; and many small towns which would have seen mills shuttered, saw the mills converted to other uses with continued employment of the town residents.

Now if Governor McCrory will appoint a Secretary of Commerce who will focus on foriegn industry, we could see a resurgence in NC employment.
