VMA Port Day: Thank You!


For Increasing Our Capability for Growth



The Virginia Maritime Association thanks the General Assembly for a 100-year partnership of protecting, promoting, and encouraging commerce through Virginia’s ports, and preparing us for a prosperous future.

Thanks to your hard work, in the last 5 years, 214 port-related businesses have announced expansions or new investments totaling over $7B dollars and creating 21,127 new jobs.

And in this pandemic, the improvements you championed make your port among the most efficient in delivering critical goods, protective equipment, and medical supplies to those who need them.

Your vision of Virginia’s potential in the global maritime economy and your faith in our industry will benefit our citizens for decades to come.
