Governor McCrory announces "small business week"

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

Welcome to small business week.  Governor Pat McCrory has designated the week of June 17-21, 2013 as North Carolina Small Business Week.  He hopes the focus will help people understand the importance of the small business and the people who own them. 

"Small businesses are the backbone of North Carolina's economy," said Governor McCrory. "The entrepreneurial spirit of small business owners and the role they play in encouraging economic growth is vital to our state."

"In many ways, small business is actually big business in North Carolina," said Sharon Decker, North Carolina Secretary of Commerce. "They represent 98 percent of all employers and employ roughly half of private-sector labor force.  We applaud their contribution to our state and want to do all we can to encourage the growth and success of small business."
