Gov. Perdue will visit both Robeson and Surry counties today to make economic development announcements.
Perdue is scheduled to be in Pembroke, about 100 miles southwest of Raleigh, at 9:30 a.m.
The event is being held at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke's Regional Center for Economic, Community and Professional Development.
At 11:30 a.m., Perdue will be in Elkin, about 150 miles west of Raleigh, in Surry County.
The event is being held at the site of a 416,000-square-foot distribution facility that was once occupied by Candle Corp. of America.
News reports have dubbed the Elkin economic development announcement "Project Clear."
The Winston-Salem Journal reported that the company is an auto-parts manufacturer that will create 260 jobs.
The N.C. Commerce Department has also scheduled an Economic Investment Committee meeting for today at 11 a.m. in Raleigh. The committee is responsible for approving jobs and investment incentives grants for companies.
