Assemblymember Jose Medina (D-Riverside) Chair of the Assembly Jobs, Economic Development, and the Economy Committee (JEDE), held a JEDE Committee hearing at the Port of San Diego administration building to examine how the Southern California goods movement system impacts the state's global competitiveness and ability to retain high paying jobs.

During the hearing, Assemblymember Medina pointed out that he believes much of the state's economic growth will come from greater participation in the global economy. This necesitates the need to develop a modern and high-quality logistical network to facilitate the efficient movement of goods and services to support trade-related industries.

Various economic development experts, business leaders, and other key regional stakeholders were invited to provide testimony on job creation, business development, trade-related industries, and goods movement in the state. Jeff Williamson, Statewide Director for the California Centers for International Trade Development and Sector Navigator for Global Trade and Logistics provided the committee with information on the programs and services available to businesses and students to support quality jobs and business success in trade-related industries.
