Published: Friday, December 28, 2007

The region's three ports have been amalgamated into one port authority.

The ports will operate as one port authority and will be called the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority as of January 1, 2008.

Federal Transportation Minister Lawrence Cannon said amalgamation, which was supported by the stakeholders, will make the ports more efficient and more competitive globally.

"The integration of the Lower Mainland ports is a key policy measure that will position these ports to enhance investment opportunities in the region," Cannon said.

International Trade Minister David Emerson says the move will strengthen trade ties with Asia.
