Economic Importance of Trade & the Ports to Southern California

About the study

The study, conducted by the California Business Round Table, Center for Jobs and the Economy, provides valuable insights into the economic contributions of the San Pedro Port Complex (Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles) on local, regional, state, and federal levels. The study also cautions that these contributions may be jeopardized if the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) advances their draft concept of the Ports Indirect Source Rule (Ports ISR).
