Global Competitiveness

The economic vision for the Charlotte region is to become a global hub of commerce - the premier inland port city leveraging its strength in finance, energy, health care, education, entrepreneurship, manufacturing and logistics to earn world prominence. The result will be a vibrant future with greater regional prosperity and more jobs.

Anticipating significant growth in jobs related to logistics, transportation, warehousing, exporting and international manufacturing in the Charlotte area, CPCC has established a new Center for Global Workforce and Logistics Education.
