Making Charlotte A Global Hub

Charlotte area business and economic leaders continue to work towards making Charlotte a major global hub, with the new intermodal facility at Charlotte Douglas International Airport and as trade routes across the globe prepare to change due to the expansion of the Panama Canal next year. So what strategies should our region’s leaders use to help us find success in that global hub quest? What does Charlotte have that would allow us to be a global economic center? And how will success in that role change lives for Charlotteans? We’ll ask our panel of experts, including Charlotte’s mayor, Patrick Cannon.
