Business people along the South Carolina coast are getting an update on what the widening of the Panama Canal will mean to the Port of Charleston.
The delegation from South Carolina recently went to Panama and officials who made the trip share what they found Monday at a forum sponsored by The Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce.
Mary Graham of the chamber and Jim Newsome, the president and CEO of the State Ports Authority, speak at the meeting.
The canal widening will mean bigger cargo ships passing through the canal and is expected to bring changes in international trade.
