New International Trade Crossing (NITC)
Lt. Governor Brian Calley and Canadian Consul General Roy Norton to Have Joint Presentation on the New International Trade Crossing (NITC)
Lansing Regional Chamber to Host Discussion on Public/Private Partnership that Represents Jobs & Global Commerce Future
Why the NITC Matters
With more than 10,000 jobs in the Greater Lansing region dependent on trade with Canada, it is critical that the Mid-Michigan region and the State of Michigan remain connected to global markets. The new international crossing will not only enhance Michigan's $44 billion a year trade relationship with Canada, but also sends a strong message that Michigan is a hub of true global commerce.
Join the Discussion
Join Lt. Governor Brian Calley and Canadian Counsel General Roy Norton as they present a joint discussion on the New International Trade Crossing (NITC). They will discuss the next steps in the development of the NITC and the immeasurable return on investment in progress, economic growth and prosperity for our region and state.
LRCC Has an International Focus
The LRCC's continual support for the new bridge closely aligns with our efforts in promoting an international agenda in the Greater Lansing region. Recent developments such as the creation of Port Lansing, establishing a Foreign Trade Zone at Capital Region International Airport and the City of Lansing's EB5 Regional Center, are providing the infrastructure needed to create new jobs and economic investment in imports, exports, logistics and global supply chains.
