Haywood County Economic Development - What's Needed And What's Realistic
Buncombe County's larger population gives it advantages in economic development its smaller neighbors in Western North Carolina don't have. So what's there to do for those counties? Smoky Mountain News reporter Corey Vaillancourt has been looking at what Haywood County has been doing. He joined BPR's Matt Bush to discuss the county's need for workforce development, the importance of the Appalachian Regional Commission in economic development in Western North Carolina, and one example of Haywood County getting a business to relocate from Buncombe County.
