"I think that's imperative that we all continue to talk to one another to discuss the issues, to debate the issues and try and find more common ground between all of us and what we need to do to continue to try and attract more businesses to our region," he said.

Saffo says the cooperation also needs to extend to the beach towns and Brunswick and Pender counties.
