Keep Mobile Growing

2017 Annual Meeting Presentations

Keep Mobile Growing is a non-profit alliance honoring the historic and enduring role that the Port of Mobile and its related industries play in strengthening the Mobile-area and state economic prosperity and quality of life.  Today, Alabama's only deepwater seaport terminals and associated network of hundreds of large and small businesses generate $21.7 billion in economic value annually and provide jobs for 147,000 Alabamians.

Competitiveness

  • Imposing additional, unnecessary restrictions at the local level singles out Mobile and our Port industries, making our community uncompetitive with other ports. This could send a chilling signal for future economic development and even encourage companies with a history of safe operations and longstanding economic contributions to the area to relocate their businesses.
