Washington Public Ports ASsociation 

ENRICHING WASHINGTON

If you live in Washington, chances are that most of what you eat, wear and use came through one of Washington's 75 ports.  Our state is the most trade-dependent in the nation, with trade responsible for one in every four jobs in Washington.

Ports also operate marinas, docks, airports, railroads, industrial sites, and recreational facilities throughout the state, bringing investments and jobs to their communities. 

The Washington Public Ports Association promotes the interests of these ports and Washington state citizens to contribute to our state's economy and quality of life through effective government relations, ongoing education, and strong advocacy programs.
