GOOD NEWS for business travelers: Portland International Airport is in the midst of several projects that will help it better serve its more than 14 million yearly passengers. Travelers probably noticed a handful of improvements during the holidays, and there are more on the way.
The Port of Portland recently added new parking features at PDX. General manager of aviation Daren Griffin says the parking guidance system is one of just two in the U.S. It tells drivers how many spaces are open and on what floors as they enter the garage, ensuring every available spot is found. Reader boards installed on the roads to and from PDX relay the status of parking and traffic, allowing drivers to make better decisions on where to go.
Other projects are in the works, including a second parking garage with 3,000 spaces, which will be half open in spring 2009. January kicks off two years of construction to widen Airport Way to three lanes; Griffin says the work will be done in the median to cut down on traffic obstacles. This month also brings the beginning of a new baggage screening system project that will move the process out of the ticket lobby and back to the way it was pre-Sept. 11. Griffin says this is the most complicated project the airport has ever done, and it will take three years to complete. To the relief of passengers, all construction will be below the lobby.

Over the last several months we have seen a wave of cross-border acquisitions, primarily U.S.-based companies looking to purchase non-U.S.-based companies. There are a few reasons for this, but the main culprit is the U.S. corporate tax system. The United States has one of the highest corporate tax rates in the world.
