International Trade and Transport Links: A Tour of the Port of Long Beach

Jul. 24, 2016 , 2:45 pm – 4:30 pm

The Port of Long Beach, located in Los Angeles County, is one of the world's busiest seaports and a leading gateway for trade between the United States and Asia.  The 3,200-acre port supports over 300,000 jobs in southern California and generates billions of dollars in economic activity each year.  At this mobile workshop, hosted by the International Economic Development Task Force and the Transportation Steering Committee, participants will board a boat for a 90-minute harbor tour of the port to learn first-hand how the port moves millions of container units each year, and glimpse the complex logistics and supply chain dynamics that ripple across the country.  Participants should assemble at Dock 2, 100 Aquarium Way, at 2:45 p.m. for a prompt departure. This is a five-minute walk from the Long Beach Convention Center. Please wear comfortable shoes and bring a light jacket or sweater and sunscreen for the boat tour.
