International Business

Our proximity to Charlotte Douglas International Airport is a major contributor to the region’s impressive collection of international companies. Direct international flights provide fast access to major international hubs like Munich, Frankfurt, Toronto, Montreal and Mexico City. We’ve also got easy access to several foreign tropical islands, but we’re talking business here, right?

But our region has had an impressive international business community since long before CLT offered its first non-stop to Europe. Our state’s business-friendly environment, easy access to the US market and proximity to deepwater ports all combine to making the SC I-77 Alliance region an attractive global business location.
