Rob Smith, the outgoing editor of the Portland Business Journal, will be in studio one last time for our regular business update. (He’s heading to Seattle.) Here are some of the topics we’ll be discussing:
- Hanjin Shipping Company’s announcement that it will continue doing business with the Port of Portland, despite recent labor disputes
- Portland Mayor Charlie Hales’s decision to rethink the urban renewal area around Portland State University
- And, in light of Rob’s move, a comparison of the business climates in Portland and Seattle
