Port infrastructure is a critical component of the nation’s competitiveness in international trade and competing modes of domestic transportation. As a result of continued investments in infrastructure, we must analyze the economic effects of becoming a global leader in clean freight and transit.
On Thursday, May 6th from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. (ET), REMI Associate I Carson Poling, Analyst Ying Zhang, and Business Development Representative David Casazza will be hosting “Impacts of Port Infrastructure,” a special webinar presentation that will explore the economic and demographic implications of investing in port operations and facilities.
President Biden’s American Jobs Plan allocates $17 billion toward the creation, maintenance, and repair of coastal and inland ports and waterways. The fiscal and socioeconomic effects of changes to port infrastructure include shifts in global integration strategies, employment fluctuations, and more.
This discussion will also use the REMI TranSight model to provide an analysis of changes to the nation’s vast maritime strategy, including improvements to the vitality of our nation’s supply chain.
