First Dreamliner delivery confirms Charleston as international business address

I can see SC becoming the a mini-east coast CA.  I grew up there and am impressed each time I go back to visit my relatives and friends.
Charleston has been an international business address for centuries thanks to its port, but with Friday's delivery of Boeing South Carolina's first 787 to Air India, the Lowcountry has officially reached a higher elevation.

Speaking this week, economist and College of Charleston President George Benson predicted just how high the region could rise on Boeing's wings. He said historians will view the aircraft maker as the most “transformative” economic force on the Charleston area since the Civil War.
And  SC is conservative enough to hopefully steer clear of all of CA's mistakes.  Well, we can hope....
