SC, GA Issue Joint Resolution on Ports Dredging

share this news:

Representatives of development agencies in two states whose ports are competing to become the go-to destinations from an expanded Panama Canal appear to be pooling their resources.

South Carolina’s Lowcountry Economic Alliance reportedly has joined the Georgia Ports Authority and the Savannah Economic Development Authority signing a joint resolution in support of deepening both the Savannah and Charleston harbors and developing the Jasper Ocean Terminal.

“Lengthy conversations with our counterparts in Georgia have shown that we have the same goal – economic prosperity for the Lowcountry and the Coastal Empire,” alliance board member Kim Statler told “Our competitors are overseas, not across the river.”

The Lowcountry Economic Alliance is the regional economic development arm of Beaufort and Jasper counties in South Carolina.
