SAN PEDRO, Calif. – April 5, 2020 –
Today, April 5, ports throughout the Americas are recognizing Western Hemisphere Ports Day. This year’s theme is “On the Front Lines,” recognizing the role that seaports play in the COVID-19 response and recovery, as well as supply chain continuity and long-term economic stability. We at the Port of Los Angeles are proud to play a vital role in these efforts. Below is a link to a video featuring California Gov. Gavin Newsom, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Los Angeles City Councilman Joe Buscaino that spotlights the COVID-19 efforts at the Port of Los Angeles.
