    Event Description:

    Zoran Knezevic, President & CEO of the Port Alberni Port Authority, presents at our Chamber luncheon on Nov. 16/17.

    • 7 days’ sailing time savings for large container ships
    • 14.5 million kilometres fewer truck trips in Greater Vancouver leads to the reduction of 22,000 tons of CO2 emissions
    • Dramatically improved import / export opportunities for the more than 2200 Vancouver Island businesses, and the jobs they create, in goods production and manufacturing on Vancouver Island 
    • Estimated annual savings to Greater Vancouver commuters of $76Million
    • Economic Impact of over 288,000 FTE Canadian Jobs and an increase of $21.3 Billion to Canada’s GDP
    • Enhanced Gateway security resiliency and diversity
    • Unlocking land potential and economic growth for the ever-increasing Vancouver Island population
    Mr. Knezevic will discuss the scope and impact of -  "PATH" - the proposed Port Alberni Transshipment Hub.
