The Florida Chamber Foundation, in partnership with the Florida Department of Transportation, hosted the 2013 Transportation Summit at the Honey Lake Plantation in Greenville, Florida. Just outside of the state Capitol, this one-day summit brought together top business leaders in Florida to participate in helping to secure Florida’s transportation future.
In 2014, Florida will pass New York as the third most populous state in America. By 2030, Florida will grow by approximately six million new residents. Needless to say, this growth will require much from Florida’s transportation systems.
The Florida Chamber Foundation is constantly focused on identifying solutions to issues facing our great state and bringing together stakeholders that have a vested interest in those solutions. The Foundation released the first Florida Trade & Logistics Study in December, 2010, which identified many opportunities facing Florida with improved transportation infrastructure. We anticipate our Foundation releasing Phase II of this research later next year.
The one-day event covered essential topics to Florida’s transportation future such as freight, logistics and trade; mobility, moving people and goods; funding and investment, and much more.
