The ports of Detroit and Windsor are part of the world’s longest deep-water inland navigation system – one that generates 227,000 jobs in the U. S. and Canada. Join the ambassadors of Great Lakes-Seaway shipping to learn how new ships, public and private investments, and marketing initiatives currently under way could lead to further economic development for the region.

Terence Bowles, President and CEO of the St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation in Canada, and Mark Barker, President of the U.S.-based Interlake Steamship Co. will be speaking about new horizons for Great Lakes-Seaway shipping at a breakfast event hosted by the Detroit Regional and Windsor-Essex Regional Chambers of Commerce Friday, October 11, 2013. Topics of discussion will include new innovations, investment and market opportunities happening in the Great Lakes-Seaway System — a navigation system that creates 227,000 jobs in Canada and the U.S.  

Roy Norton, Consul General of Canada based in Detroit, will offer welcoming remarks.  The event is sponsored by the Detroit-Wayne County Port Authority and the Windsor Port Authority, both of which will also be in attendance.
