The Port of Virginia is Healthy, Growing and Positioning Itself for Success

NORFOLK, VA — The Port of Virginia® is ready for the future and well-positioned to be the leading global trade gateway on the US East Coast, said its chief executive to more than 450 attendees of the annual 2022 State of the Port luncheon last week.

The annual event is a collaboration between the port and the Hampton Roads Global Commerce Council. It brings together decision makers from across the industry, elected officials, economic development leaders, port customers, cargo owners and a host of others who are interested in The Port of Virginia.

“Our port is strong and through a new round of investments we are positioning this world-class gateway for the future so we can continue to drive cargo growth, economic investment and job creation throughout Virginia for the next generation,” said Stephen A. Edwards, CEO and executive director of the Virginia Port Authority.
