RALEIGH, N.C. -

Gov. Pat McCrory and his administration are highlighting the importance of manufacturing to North Carolina's economy with events across the state.

McCrory's office said the Republican governor and Commerce Secretary Sharon Decker will observe national "Manufacturing Day" on Friday.

The governor will start the morning at Cape Fear Community College outside Wilmington, while Decker will visit North Carolina State University.

Later, Decker has an "economic development announcement" to make in Lumberton, with McCrory offering similar news in Shelby. The pair will meet for an afternoon development announcement at Davidson County Community College in Lexington.

"Manufacturing Day" is the idea of three groups, including the National Association of Manufacturers.
