In partnership with the Otay Mesa Chamber, the San Diego Regional Chamber hosted a roundtable discussion with Federal Highway Administator Gregory Nadeau to discuss the border region’s growing freight economy. By 2045, San Diego’s freight economy is expected to grow by 65 percent which requires a large investment in infrastructure in order to support the increased demand of transportation of goods and services. The meeting was an opportunity for business and policy representatives to share ideas, insights, and experiences to improve freight movement and strategies to raise the conversation to the national level.
San Diego is the first border city to host a freight economy meeting with the FHWA; additional meetings will be scheduled along the border region. For more photos of the meeting, visit the Chamber’s Facebook photo album.
