    Expanding Trade. Growing Our Economy.

     

    Here in the Northwest, we’re traders and exporters. Trade is critical to our economic growth, to job creation and to our place in the U.S. economy.

     

    We have an opportunity today, to expand our trade with Asia and the rest of the world, and improve our regional economy.

     

    This opportunity is driven by demand for affordable energy from countries like Japan, South Korea and China. Meeting that demand will provide over a billion dollars in new, private investment from coal companies, railroads, and port operators to expand existing Washington ports and rail infrastructure.

     

    Expanding trade benefits our entire region – opening new markets for farmers and other Northwest commodities, creating needed jobs for skilled labor, and generating millions in new tax revenue to support key community services like schools and first responders.
