Scotland Promoted at Foreign Investment Summit

July 3, 2017

Scotland County Economic Development Corporation Director Mark Ward represented North Carolina in the nation’s capital, while also managing to put his hometown in the minds of foreign companies and congressional leaders. Ward was in Washington recently as part of the North Carolina Southeast Partnership to promote North Carolina international companies. The event, SelectUSA Investment Summit, included representatives from South American, Thailand, Japan, Germany, and Italy — all of which have an interest in locating to the US and North Carolina, according to Ward. Participants at the first three summits announced more than $20.6 billion in foreign investments into the United States between 2014-2016.
