AAPA: Port Industry Execs to Discuss Infrastructure Issues (USA)

The seventh annual Shifting International Trade Routes conference at the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay Hotel will feature a press conference beginning at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 23.

The program is sponsored by the American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA), in cooperation with the U.S. Maritime Administration (MarAd) and hosted by the Tampa Port Authority (TPA).

Press conference speakers will include Tampa Port Authority President and CEO Paul Anderson, together with Port of Seattle CEO Tay Yoshitani (who serves as AAPA’s 2013/14 Chairman of the Board) and AAPA President Kurt Nagle. They will discuss key issues affecting international trade, and important trends and variables like global trade demand and its positive effects on domestic exports.

They will also discuss funding for critical transportation infrastructure, such as waterside and landside improvements that are necessary to keep ports, as well as local and regional economies, viable.

All three presenters are highly seasoned maritime industry experts who will offer unique and complementary perspectives on dominant trade, transportation and infrastructure issues that affect nearly all seaports, including right here in Tampa Bay.
