Florida aims for thousands of jobs with focus on widening of Panama Canal

Thursday, December 16, 2010

The Florida Chamber Foundation unveiled its study of ports, trade and logistics in the Sunshine State -- and argued that an increased focus on these industries could lead to an additional 143,000 jobs in the state.

The study maintained that Florida’s geographic position and the expansion of the Panama Canal expected to be finished in 2014 could lead to increased trade. The study called for Florida to get at least one port ready in time for the Panama Canal widening.
