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.

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