The city of Charlotte, home to Bank of America and five other Fortune 500 companies, is the second-largest banking center in the country

Information and biotechnology industries are on the rise in North Carolina, thanks to the state's research universities fueling the growth of the internationally known research and science center Research Triangle Park. The city of Charlotte, home to Bank of America and five other Fortune 500 companies, is the second-largest banking center in the country. Tobacco is also vital to North Carolina's agricultural economy. There is also a growing consumer demand in the state for locally grown organic and non-organic food products. North Carolina is still the largest textile employer in the country, even though factories in several small towns have closed and relocated to Asia and Latin America.
