The Southern California region depends on the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles as their economic engine, and the benefits of that activity can be felt in every job sector. Direct and indirect jobs created by goods movement and the supply chain industry have been negatively affected by the Great Recession of 2008-09. This conference will explore what is in store for jobs in our industry, and what we can do to continue making progress on cleaning the air while building the infrastructure that will support the jobs of our future.

The goal of this conference is to inform attendees on advancements being made at the Ports regarding reductions in emissions; of the value of the Ports to the local and regional economy; and what the future growth at the Ports will be.
