BURLINGTON, N.C. (AP) -- Gov. Pat McCrory is using the backdrop of a textile manufacturer for a big announcement about how North Carolina government is seeking to increase business in the state.
McCrory is speaking Monday at Copland Fabrics in Burlington about what his office called a major commerce and economic development policy announcement.
The Republican governor has been telling audiences his administration is assembling a state Commerce Department reorganization proposal.
McCrory has said North Carolina's economic brand has faded in recent years and needs to be changed to make the state more attractive to business.
Commerce Secretary Sharon Decker said recently public-private partnerships may be used to distribute government-funded incentives packages.
