On June 8th, an article co-authored by WTCNO CEO Caitlin Cain and Port of South Louisiana Executive Director Paul Aucoin was published, featured in multiple outlets. The article focused on the association of agriculture and infrastructure in Louisiana. As the Trump Administration pushes a new nationwide infrastructure plan, the link between infrastructure and a strong economy is a pertinent topic in Louisiana.
Since the state is such a large producer and exporter of farm products, transportation via waterways, roads and bridges is essential for economic success. The maintenance and support of this infrastructure therefore influences the economy by producer's ability to move their goods. The full article by Ms. Cain and Mr. Aucoin can be found at the link attached.
