DETROIT (WWJ) – The port on the Detroit River could have a big effect on Michigan’s economic future.

This Thursday, a roundtable discussion regarding the Great Lakes and Michigan’s Economic Future will be held in downtown Detroit. 

John Jamian, director of the Detroit Wayne County Port Authority, will speak at the event.

“This is the time to work with the rail industry, the trucking and the highway industry – we have a world class airport and of course our port and bringing everything together in our own backyard  we have a magnificent waterway that is capable of importing and potentially exporting  anywhere in the world rights from our docks in downtown Detroit,” said Jamian.
