Port of Hueneme, California, informs that a trade delegation is on its way to Latin America, with visits to Peru, Ecuador, and Chile. The Port explains that its trade mission aligns with President Obama’s “Look South Initiative,” launched to make U.S. companies aware of emerging trade opportunities in Latin America and understand the resources available to help them penetrate these markets.

About the Port
The Port of Hueneme is one of the most productive and efficient commercial trade gateways for niche cargo on the West Coast. The Port is governed by 5 locally elected Port Commissioners. It moves $8 billion in goods each year and consistently ranks among the top ten U.S. ports for automobiles and fresh produce.

Its port operations support the community by bringing $1.1 billion in economic activity and creating 10,226 trade-related jobs. Trade through the Port of Hueneme generates more than $69 million in annual state and local taxes which funds vital community services.
