The Office of the United States Trade Representative has named Port of Los Angeles Executive Director, Gene Seroka, to its Intergovernmental Policy Advisory Committee (IGPAC).
This group is tasked with providing policy advice on trade, investment, and development issues that significantly impact US state and local governments.
The Committee is comprised of experts in general trade, investment, and development issues.
Seroka is among 10 new appointees to the Committee, who join five other members already serving on the panel.
“This highly qualified group of stakeholders and elected officials represent diverse backgrounds, interests, and priorities and I congratulate them on joining this important committee,” said Ambassador, Katherine Tai.
“The IGPAC is a critical link that ensures USTR’s work is responsive to needs of all people in the United States.”
In the summer of 2023, the State of California gave the Port of Los Angeles $233 million in funding to finish critical infrastructure improvements aimed at establishing a more efficient and sustainable supply chain.
More recently, the Port of Los Angeles released a Waterfront Connectivity draft for San Pedro, a long-term planning document outlining strategies to better connect the larger region to the LA Waterfront.
