Economic Development Week: Partnerships
Partnerships are an integral part of economic development. The Port partners with many other agencies to ensure the success of our community and its projects. We appreciate these partnerships with other ports, cities, counties, state agencies, TRIDEC, PNNL, DOE, Hanford Contractors, SBA (Small Business Association), SBDC (Small Business Development Center), downtown associations, the Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce, West Richland Chamber of Commerce, Tri-Cities Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and Visit Tri-Cities just to name a few.

This partnership manifests in many ways depending on the project or time of year but is always pursuant to the betterment and growth of our economies and community.
