Raleigh and the Triangle have excellent communications both domestically as well as internationally via Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU).
The Triangle area belongs to the most expansive and fastest growing in the United States. The reasons are many; a number of excellent universities, a pro-business climate for software and high-tech firms, a world-class telecommunications infrastructure, and a well-established reputation for its good climate, reasonable cost of living and excellent quality of life.
The Triangle's good reputation makes it an attractive area to work and live in. This provides a competitive advantage for the area's software and high-tech firms, by making it easier to attract and relocate special skills and talent from other parts of the United States.
