Georgia Ports

Georgia Trend magazine has a great piece about the state-wide economic impact of Georgia's ports. Thousands and thousands of jobs directly and/or indirectly associated with the ports. Billions in annual revenue generated as a result of the ports and plenty of tax revenue going to the state because of the very same ports.

Include this article in your next International unit as a way to highlight Georgia's unique position as one of the leading states for global trade and commerce. I bet everyone in Idaho, Montana and Arkansas must be jealous of our bustling ports.
