In light of the Port of Long Beach’s $4 billion modernization program and the development of the Port of Busan’s new facilities, the two ports signed  a “sister port” agreement this week to exchange “technology, ideas and culture”. This event took place in South Korea and was attended by Long Beach Board of Harbor Comissioners President Thomas Fields and Acting Executive Director Al Moro. The agreement is not legally binding but intended to encourage cooperation for new opportunities between the two parties.
