Port development commission

January 17th, 2008

Today’s Providence Journal has an article about legislation filed by state Senator Paul E. Moura that would create a commission to study ways to attract more shipping commerce to Rhode Island’s ports:

If approved, the legislative commission would hear testimony from experts in the shipping and fishing industries, and study economic opportunities on all industrial waterfronts, including those in Providence, East Providence and Newport.

The Providence Working Waterfront Alliance is encouraged to see General Assembly leaders focusing on port development and we look forward to working with them to help Rhode Island realize the opportunities created by exploding international shipping volumes.
