The president/CEO of the Port of New Orleans says preparing for President Obama's visit to the port when he comes to New Orleans on Friday has been "mind boggling".
"Meeting after meeting after meeting, just a whole host of people involved," says Gary LaGrange.
LaGrange says the President will make a midday appearance at the port to discuss the importance of exports in growing the nation's economy.
He says the White House requested and they provided information on export activity at the port.
"We're really excited about it and looking forward to the visit and an opportunity to showcase the Port of New Orleans and the people of New Orleans if you will," LaGrange said.
