Last month, mayors from North Carolina and Alabama cities and towns visited China to learn about ways that their municipalities can do business with China. Mayor Jill Swain of Huntersville came home with new knowledge and optimism about a future tie with China and our region. Now officials from China are visiting the Charlotte region to learn more about opportunities here. But this isn't just an isolated potential relationship. Business with China is on the rise in North Carolina and throughout the South. We'll talk with Chinese and Charlotte area officials about why the south and our region are attractive to Chinese business people and what kinds of ties may be formed in the future, when Charlotte Talks.
