Economy of North Carolina
North Carolina is one of the ten most economically developed states in the United States, characterized by a well-developed financial sector, agriculture, tourism, and industry.
North Carolina’s largest city, Charlotte is the second largest banking center in the United States of America (after New York City). The headquarters of a number of financial companies are located here, including one of the largest US banks Bank of America, the regional (covering the territory of the East Coast of the USA) office of Wells Fargo Bank and many others.
In addition to these banks, several other Fortune 500 companies (the largest companies in the United States) are based in Charlotte, including Lowe’s retail chain, which sells various household goods; one of the leading US steelmakers Nucor; energy company Duke Energy; major car dealer Sonic Automotive; aerospace parts and equipment manufacturer Goodrich; SPX Corporation, which produces hydraulic equipment, power supply systems and other industrial products; manufacturer of pulp and paper products Domtar. Other major North Carolina companies include nuclear power equipment manufacturer Babcock & Wilcox, automotive components (primarily radiators) Radiator Specialty Company, cable television operator Time Warner Cable, retail chains Belk, Food Lion and Harris Teeter, to name a few.
Although North Carolina cannot boast of particularly large mineral reserves, mica and lithium (first place in the USA), granite, talc and even precious stones are mined in the state.
The nature of North Carolina contributes to the development of agriculture, thanks to the mild climate and fertile soils, the state ranks first in the United States in terms of tobacco production. In addition, soybeans, sweet potatoes (sweet potatoes), corn, cotton, various vegetables and other crops are grown in the fields of the “Tar Heel State”, as North Carolina is often called. Livestock farming (cattle and pigs), poultry farming (chickens and turkeys) and, on the ocean coast, fishing (crabs, shrimp and other seafood) are also well developed.
In recent years, due to a sharp increase in demand, many farms in North Carolina have shifted to the production of “organic” (that is, environmentally friendly) products.
Historically, North Carolina has had a well-developed textile and furniture industry. Although today quite a few residents of the state are employed in these industries (mainly in small towns), significant competition from China and the states of Southeast Asia has forced the state’s industry to become more diversified and multidirectional.
