New task force visits Valdosta

May 12, 2008

Valdosta - Governor Sonny Perdue says our freight industry is the key to making Georgia the Gateway to the East Coast.

But he wants to make sure we're up for the job.

He's created a task force to assess Georgia's freight and logistics industry .

They believe their findings will help them create a more competitive industry and boost economic development statewide.

"We are going to get this information from the local business community, from the citizens and those responsible for expanding the business community in the areas. We will deliver the report to the Governor. He's our chief executive and he wants business to prosper in Georgia," says Bob Fauls, Task Force Chairman.

The task force met in Valdosta Monday. They will travel to Savannah, Macon, Dalton and Atlanta in the next week to meet with business leaders there as well.
