RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – The North Carolina China Center, housed at the World Trade Park in the headquarters building of Longistics, has announced that North Carolina State Treasurer Janet Cowell has joined its board of directors. Cowell became state treasurer in 2008, the first woman ever to do so in North Carolina.

Cowell gained her knowledge and experience in government operations from her time as a member of the North Carolina Senate and the Raleigh City Council.
“Having State Treasurer Cowell join our Board of Directors further demonstrates the commitment from our state government to strengthen relationships with our many partners in China,” said NCCC President Tom Martineau. “In doing so, we can look to further business opportunities for North Carolina and create lasting connections with the Greater China Region.”
