Why does this matter to an import/export company in Portland? Well, let’s consider this quote today from the Business Journal:
Portland business leaders said Tuesday that a new plan to double the region’s exports over the next five years could create 113,000 area jobs.
Economic development officials, who want to raise the region’s value of exported goods to $42 million by 2017, unveiled strategies that could build on Portland’s exporting base. The Greater Portland Metro Portland Export Strategy was developed in concert with a Washington, D.C.-based Brookings Institution program. The Brookings-Rockefeller Project seeks to better link American companies with global customers.
The strategies, which will be presented Wednesday morning at a Portland Business Alliance event, include:
- Supporting and cultivating primary exporters, including such area tech giants as Intel Corp. and TriQuint Semiconductor Inc., so that they provide “greater economic impact and longer-term local industry sustainability.” Tech companies provide some 56 percent of the area’s total exports.
- Encourage companies that don’t export a lot of materials to export more.
- Build a pipeline that makes it easier to export. Some 18 percent of Portland’s economy depends on exports, much higher than the national average of 11 percent. However, 89 percent of the area’s companies either aren’t exporting at all or aren’t even considering it.
- Market the city’s various business proclivities, such as clean technology and other clusters.
