Policy Luncheon Policy Discussion With Governor Bev Perdue, State Of North Carolina

Please join us for a luncheon policy discussion with Governor Bev Perdue as she visits Silicon Valley. This is a great opportunity for your executives to learn about what the State of North Carolina has done to strengthen its position in technology and biotechnology and meet the Governor, who has provided leadership on a number of issues important to the tech sector. Governor Perdue has announced she will not run for re-election.

North Carolina is home to one of the country’s leading bio/life science communities and Governor Perdue is a strong supporter of the sector and its continued growth. In recent years, North Carolina enjoyed a nearly 5% increase in pharmaceutical and biotech job growth, while many other states saw declines. In addition, North Carolina has some of the country’s largest biomanufacturing, vaccine production, and clinical research clusters plus a number of world-class research institutions.
