North Carolina officials say job talks with Apple continue

RALEIGH (AP) — Business recruiters say they’re still in talks with Apple over bringing more jobs to North Carolina.

The state’s main recruiting arms say they’re withholding details of North Carolina’s failed effort to land more than 5,000 Apple jobs going instead to Austin, Texas.

A spokeswoman for the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina said Tuesday the public records will stay secret because “Apple is currently an active recruitment project.” The state Commerce Department said the same Monday.

Gov. Roy Cooper said last month there are ongoing jobs talks with Apple.

Sources told The Associated Press last year that Apple was strongly considering North Carolina for its new corporate campus. The company last month bypassed North Carolina not only for the massive project but also expansions in several other cities.
