Speaker: Port of Seattle Commissioner
The goal is to engage in a conversation around working together to lead the region in creating a sustainable future of opportunity, equity and prosperity.
The Commissioners are looking forward to sharing an update on what’s new at the Port including mega projects underway at Sea-Tac Airport to catch up with increased traveler demands, plans to increase cargo movement through the Northwest Seaport Alliance, their commitment towards readying our future workforce through internships and training, ways we are supporting small business growth, and collaborations with local governments and communities to spur economic development and opportunity for all.
The Port of Seattle is an economic engine and environmental steward that has been serving our region for over a Century. Through trade, transportation, and tourism, Port activity generates over 216,000 jobs and nearly $20 billion in business revenue. As our region continues to grow and change, the Port is navigating opportunities and challenges to effectively serve our customers and communities for future generations.
