Houston says mission to Panama in readiness for big changes in Canal traffic
A delegation of Houston politicians and business leaders will travel to Panama today hoping their efforts, and a widened Panama Canal, will mean billions for the Texas economy.
The Port of Houston Authority is positioning itself to benefit from new traffic.
“Anything that middle America needs we can bring through the Port of Houston,” said Harris County Attorney Vince Ryan, who will be among the local leaders making the trip to Panama.
