Celebrating Our Diversity

When I ran for office, I stated that we would also leverage our global diversity, not only for the benefits of our culture, but also to create more economic opportunities, by leveraging our connections to other regions of the world.

Examples: I am working on an economic development opportunity to bring a global software company from India to locate in the Triangle and I brought a biotech delegation from Andrapradesh, hosting the Commerce Minister and his team at Fuji Diosynth in Morrisville. From this visit, we are discussing a regional partnership with Andrapradesh.

Indian Ambassador/Nepalese Ambassador: I hosted visits in Morrisville with these dignitaries, and we are now working on the possibilities of Sister Cities Programs with other Towns and cities.
