Chief Executive magazine released its annual Best & Worst States for Business survey and
North Carolina placed third for CEO ranking. The survey captures the sentiments of CEOs on a range of important issues, including the friendliness of their tax and regulatory regime, workforce quality, and living environment. North Carolina was cited for "...strong technical and university support...also great quality of life aspects for work and home life."
According to Marshall Cooper, CEO of Chief Executive magazine and ChiefExecutive.net, "This has been a particularly volatile year." He stated that “Business leaders are challenged with everything from the growing talent shortage and skills gap to digital transformation to discerning how the presidential election will impact their business.”
J.P. Donlon, Editor-in-Chief Emeritus of the magazine and website said that “Business-friendly states work hard to maintain a competitive environment." He added, "Many governors have gotten openly proactive about trying to steal business away from other states, and this new ‘war’ game has every economic development team on alert.”
