The Port of Tacoma works closely with elected officials at the local, state and federal government to fulfill its mission to create jobs and enhance the trade economy in Pierce County and Washington state.
Port commissioners and staff regularly discuss issues related to international trade with elected officials. Topics include freight mobility projects, transportation infrastructure funding, environmental policies, port security and land use, as well as economic policies that improve port competitiveness and make Washington state a good place to do business. The Port partners with several economic development-oriented organizations to jointly advocate for these issues.
