Charlotte And Global Competitiveness


Decision makers around our region want Charlotte to be a leader in global commerce, and many have reason to be encouraged at the progress we've made toward that goal. Trade routes around the world are evolving, including here in our city, in the form of a major intermodal facility at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport. We'll talk about the changes Charlotte could benefit from in a world-wide shift in international trade and how the city's leaders are preparing it, all in advance of a summit at Central Piedmont Community College on the topic, when Charlotte Talks.

Jerry Orr
- Aviation Director at Charlotte Douglas International Airport
Mike Manis - Director of Community and Economic Development for Centralina Council of Government
Chase Saunders - Attorney with the McNair Law Firm. He wrote (with CPCC President Tony Zeiss and urban planner Michael Gallis) a paper about business history called "Create It, Make It, Move It."

  • The 2013 Global Competitiveness Summit II is at CPCC's Harris Campus on Feb. 21st from 7am-noon. Details here.
