MISSION GROW AND MARKET A VIBRANT REGIONAL ECONOMY

THE HOUSTON PORT REGION IS ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL INDUSTRIAL AND LOGISTIC BASES IN THE WORLD The geographic location provides global access for both goods and people. From Port Houston to a host of multi-national entities doing business around the clock, the Houston Port region is where you want to be to connect your business to the world:

LARGEST PETROCHEMICAL COMPLEX AND THE NATION’S BUSIEST PORT, a powerhouse largely due to our business-friendly climate as well as access to world-class infrastructure and a talented workforce that crosses production, maritime and an array of logistic expertise. DIRECT ACCESS TO THE HOUSTON SHIP CHANNEL AND NUMEROUS LOGISTICAL AND DISTRIBUTION CHANNELS, an ideal hub for companies that need worldwide distribution for their products. Access is aided by our world-class infrastructure that not only supply workers but minimize time, transportation, and distribution costs domestically and internationally. A STABLE INVESTMENT FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT SUPPORTED BY A STRONG EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM that includes several workforce development centers of excellence through our higher learning institutions and safety educational partners.


CHAIRMAN’S MESSAGE As the Chairman, I want to share Economic Alliance’s accomplishments in 2022. Recognizing our incredible members, partners, and employees for everything they do to make the Houston Port region the most sought-after destination in the world for petrochemical, manufacturing, maritime and logistics operations. It’s the individuals of this region, our members/companies, partners, municipalities, that convene and do the work to advance the Houston Port region globally. There is not an organization in Houston, let alone the state of Texas, that makes as much of an impact on its footprint when you combine our initiatives of Economic Development, Public Policy, Transportation Infrastructure, Workforce Development, Quality of Life and Events/Thought Leadership AMONG THE NOTEWORTHY ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF 2022: •

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT - 3 wins: consisted of - $1.6B in one-time capital investment – 100 direct jobs created and over 750 direct skilled jobs retained. The industry make-up of the wins was no surprise and is dominated by petrochemical projects.

TRANSPORTATION/INFRASTRUCTURE – The taskforce has long advocated for the I-10 East Expansion/San Jacinto River Bridge project and in 2022 TXDOT has included over $170M of funding for a new I-10 Bridge in their Unified Transportation Program.

PUBLIC POLICY - Over 3 days a 20-person Economic Alliance Leadership Team conducted 23 meetings with Senate, Congressional and Association representatives, along with a Congressional Dinner to discuss the Houston Port region’s Federal Policy priorities that were authored by the Public Policy Taskforce.

3 wins: consisted of - $1.6B in one-time capital investment – 100 direct jobs created and over 750 direct skilled jobs retained. The industry make-up of the wins was no surprise and is dominated by petrochemical projects. Oxyvinyl and Chevron will modernize existing facilities to increase production and address any future industry regulations that could impact production. While Kaneka will focus on the production of a biodegradable plastic with limited air emissions for a product that already has a use in the consumer market.

The company expansions are CREATING LIVABLE WAGE JOBS and committing future asset investments that impact our day to day lives. PETROCHEMICALS FORM THE BACKBONE OF OUR MODERN ECONOMY and are found in a wide range of consumer and industrial products, many of which are considered ESSENTIAL FOR DAILY USE. Most individuals associate petrochemicals with plastics, but their potential uses span a much broader spectrum of applications. While PETROCHEMICAL PRODUCTS PRODUCED IN HOUSTON have a global reach, we can break it down to the simple terms of impacting everyday household GOODS THAT SUPPLY HOMES in our region, MEDICAL DEVICES utilized by scenarios in the Texas Medical Center to NASA developing COMPONENTS TO EXPLORE OUTER SPACE. Most of us come into contact with more petrochemical end products than we do any other substance on the planet.

BUILDING CONSENSUS

TRANSPORTATION/ INFRASTRUCTURE Economic Alliance convenes a Transportation Infrastructure taskforce that is a collection of local/state elected officials, Port Houston, petrochemical association partners and private sector members. The Task Force mission is to deliver TxDOT and key leadership a prioritized transportation/infrastructure project list based on stakeholder consensus and critical investment need. TRANSPORTATION PROJECT PRIORITIZATION

Impacting safety, mobility efficiency and environmental concerns related to the SH146/ SH225/610/I10 transportation corridor. Facilitate economic opportunity through the acknowledgment of Port Houston’s unprecedent growth that has made it the nation’ busiest port.

Enhance the Houston Port region’s $50 billion in manufacturing expansions, Port Houston’s $1B commitment to widen and deepen the Houston ship channel, and state/local investment to construct the $2B Beltway 8 bridge and expansion of SH146.

Economic Alliance is making certain the Houston Port region is CONNECTING MOBILITY/SAFETY/ ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES, ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY, and our UNPRECEDENTED INDUSTRY GROWTH with current and future transportation/infrastructure projects.


2022

TRANSPORTATION/INFRASTRUCTURE OUTCOMES BUILDING CONSESUS - Prioritized transportation/infrastructure project list for TXDOT based on stakeholder input. I-10 East Expansion/San Jacinto River Bridge Economic Alliance’s Transportation Taskforce has long advocated for this project and in 2022 TxDOT has included over $170M of funding for a new I-10 Bridge in their Unified Transportation Program. A new bridge will not only bring an end to our constant concerns with barge strikes, but it will also bring much-needed traffic relief to the region. The taskforce will continue to monitor the project to ensure the project is adequately funded and completed on time

Beltway 8 Bridge and Direct Connectors The Transportation Taskforce compiled a support letter that advocated for funding of all 8 direct connectors for the Beltway 8 Bridge, currently only 5 of the 8 connectors are funded. The support letter sent to key Officials at TxDOT, HGAC and HCRTA was signed by all Houston Port region Federal representatives, local State of Texas Senate and House representatives, Harris County Precinct 2 Commissioner and all local Mayors urging the agencies to work together to find a solution for funding the 8 direct connectors.
