Port Everglades has a new sister port

Broward County’s Port Everglades has a new sister. The Port has entered a Memorandum of Understanding with the Port of Limon, Costa Rica, as part of its International Sister Seaport Program. Costa Rica is the Port’s eighth largest trading program by volume. Broward County Commissioners Chip LaMarca and Dale V.C. Holness, who completed an Enterprise Florida trade mission to Costa Rica signed the Memorandum on behalf of Port Everglades.

The MOU outlines joint initiatives the two parties will undertake and states that it is within “their mutual interest to establish an alliance of cooperation aimed at facilitating international trade and generating new businesses by promoting the all-water routes between” the two ports. The key joint initiatives include marketing activities, market studies, modernization and improvements, and training.

After the signing, Port Everglades and representatives from Costa Rica discussed opportunities for information sharing and took a tour.
