PRPA Hosts Government Officials

Officials of the Philadelphia Regional Port Authority (PRPA) and Greenwich Terminals, LLC, operators of PRPA’s Packer Avenue Marine Terminal, hosted yesterday at the Port U.S. Senator Patrick Toomey and U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker.

Senator Toomey and Secretary Pritzker arrived at the Packer Avenue Marine Terminal to participate in a roundtable discussion followed by a bus tour of the terminal. The primary topics covered during the one-hour roundtable were job development, international commerce, and how federal trade policies and international trade agreements could assist businesses.

Representing PRPA at the meeting were PRPA Board Member and private business owner Michael K. Pearson, Director of Marketing Sean Mahoney, and Director of Governmental & Public Affairs Don Brennan.

Mr. Pearson discussed trade issues from the perspective of an area business expanding its scope into that arena; Mr. Mahoney brought up the importance of effective trade pacts on port business; and Mr. Brennan updated the assembled group on the Delaware River Channel Deepening Project, currently deepening the region’s  main shipping channel to 45 feet.
