GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — Governor Roy Cooper attended Pitt County Chamber of Commerce’s Power Luncheon in Greenville on Tuesday.
The event was held from 12 p.m. until 1 p.m. at the Hilton located on Greenville Blvd.
The purpose of the governor’s trip was to highlight his plans for the east and how the east can be improved.
“We’re working very hard to bring economic development to eastern North Carolina,” said Governor Cooper. “And we’re making North Carolina be a top contender for those companies that are coming to the United States for the first time and expanding advanced manufacturing.”
Governor Cooper spoke on transportation needs, future Interstate 587, healthcare reform, economic development, education, and jobs.
Chamber members wanted this to be an opportunity for people to be able to see the governor face to face.
“We hope positive things come out of this luncheon,” said Trent McGee, Pitt County Chamber of Commerce.
