Japan Will Need Construction Materials to Rebuild


Slowed by the earthquake, businesses in Japan are beginning to re-build. Josh Thomas with the Port of Portland says automakers who ship to Portland are finding ways to re-supply factories, but are slowed by a broken infrastructure. “Once some of those type of issues are resolved, they will be able to start looking at how to rebuild. But it is a mammoth effort; we’ve heard anything from $100 to $300-billion dollars.” He thinks some of the construction materials for that mammoth rebuilding will ship through the Port of Portland.
