Founded in 2000, the North Eastern Strategic Alliance (NESA) is a regional economic development organization that serves nine-counties in northeast South Carolina. NESA’s primary objective is to enhance significantly the quality of life for residents of the region by creating additional jobs and capital investment within the existing industry base as well as through recruitment of new companies and expansion of tourism-related development.

Now more than ever, successful economic development is vital to our region’s growth. If we are to thrive in the present environment we must work tirelessly to ensure the NESA Region is regarded by businesses around the globe as an ideal place to live and work.

Through one-on-one meetings, group presentations, media relations, and marketing initiatives, NESA’s leaders and staff endeavor to bring the region’s key messages to business leaders and site selection consultants, across the country and around the world.
