As part of Cameron LNG’s ongoing support of the SWLA Alliance Foundation, the company recently presented a check for $12,000 on March 9, 2022. These monies include their Chamber SWLA membership dues, sponsorships, and a $5000 donation to
the Alliance’s Foundation. Their donation will help address the critical issues facing our region: business recruitment, and business retention and expansion.
“2021 was another year of challenges for our region. At the Chamber and the Alliance Foundation we were kept on task due to the steady leadership from last year’s Chair, Jim Giffin. While we were unable to show our appreciation to Mr. Giffin at our Annual Banquet due to quarantine precautions, we were happy that we got this chance to property thank Mr. Giffin for his service to the Chamber SWLA Board and the Southwest Louisiana business community as a whole,” said Chamber SWLA / SWLA Economic Development Alliance President and CEO George Swift.
Our five parish region has many valuable assets in the aviation sector. There are airports throughout the area. The Allen Parish Airport, Beauregard Airport with its industrial mega-site, Jennings Airport, Southland Field in Carlyss , and Dequincy all have facilities to handle various private aircraft.
Over the next five years, there are $46 billion of planned projects that will use the Ship Channel — adding 90.8 million tons of cargo per year to the current cargo handled.
