LIGTT Regional Center will create thousands of jobs in Louisiana and Texas, building critical infrastructure needed for US growth and competitiveness. -- Charles Foster, co-chair of FosterQuan
Houston, TX (PRWEB) February 10, 2014
FosterQuan, LLP, one of the nation's largest immigration law firms, is pleased to announce that it has been selected as a preferred provider for the largest EB-5 Regional Center ever approved by the US Government - Louisiana International Gulf Transfer Terminal Regional Center (LIGTT).
Louisiana International Gulf Transfer Terminal (LIGTT) will be the Gateway Port to America. This monumental project is designed to create America’s first mega-transfer terminal exclusively for cargo containers entering and leaving the United States. The goal of the LIGTT Project is to create upwards of 15,000 new jobs and generate tens of billions of dollars in revenue over the next century. The trans-modal container shipping terminal seeks to increase the efficiency of America’s existing but strained supply chain infrastructure as it will be state-of-the-art, green built, and employ the latest automated technology and design logistics. The LIGTT Project can, therefore, allow the United States to level the playing field with our global trading partners.
The Immigrant Investor Program, also known as EB-5 Investor Visa, is a 20-year-old program that is linked to job-creation, and grants permanent residence to foreign nationals who invest a minimum of $500,000 into a new commercial enterprise. Commenting on LIGTT’s entry into EB-5, Charles Foster, co-chair of FosterQuan said, “LIGTT Regional Center will create thousands of jobs in Louisiana and Texas, building critical infrastructure needed for US growth and competitiveness. The EB-5 program is a great win-win program – boosting the economy, funding critical infrastructure, creating local jobs and helping immigrant investors get their permanent residence. LIGTT, given its unprecedented scale will produce these results on a giant scale.”
