The Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina (EDPNC) is focused on recruiting new businesses to the state, supporting the needs of existing businesses, connecting exporters with customers around the globe, helping small business owners get their start, and attracting tourists and visitors from all over the world.  

EDPNC proudly serves as North Carolina’s statewide economic development organization, committed to serving all those looking to invest in or do business with North Carolina.  



“North Carolina is part of our strategy. You can’t beat North Carolina as a supply base. Its interstate highways provide easy access throughout the Southeast and to customers across the country. At the same time, we also needed a place where workers understand advanced manufacturing – and we know from experience North Carolina’s workforce will exceed our expectations for precision and quality.”
- Carlos Vasto, General Manager, GF Linamar

“There were so many things we were looking for when we decided to expand to North America.  It was no small task to open a business in a foreign country, to understand all the requirements and culture, but North Carolina offered a great site, overwhelming support and an overall climate that made this a perfect fit.”  
- Toshiaki Fukunaga, General Manager, Research & Development, Morinaga
