The future of our state is dependent on developing a strong, vibrant economic climate. We must continue to work to attract businesses and jobs in industries that make our state competitive on a global scale. In order to accomplish this, we must set a tone for the state that is decidedly pro-business and pro-growth. This means, we begin by actively supporting our existing business culture through encouraging entrepreneurship, enhancing telecommunications and high tech growth and maximizing training opportunities for our workforce. In addition, we work to enhance South Carolina's roads, railways, and ports. When we enhance our transportation network, it not only benefits citizens, but also helps attract new companies to create jobs and boost our economy.
