Facilitating Trade and Travel at America's Ports of Entry

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

The time has come to address America's border infrastructure in order to better facilitate trade and travel at our nation's land border ports of entry (POEs).  As a result of years of inattention and underinvestment, POEs along the northern and southern borders are clogged and inefficient.  Trade is stifled, and economic vitality of communities on both sides of the border is being impaired. 

Join The Heritage Foundation and the Border Trade Alliance as we tackle these border infrastructure issues and identify possible solutions, coupling input from primary on-the-ground stakeholders with policy experts and decision-makers.
