In making public policy, it would be very useful to know the value of an extra dollar invested in transportation. It would be useful to know where, geographically and demographically, to invest that dollar. It would also be useful to be able to track the transportation sector’s contribution to the gross domestic product (GDP).
"Transportation industry is a massive enterprise with substantial direct and indirect effects on Georgia's economic productivity and economic growth. Transportation industries—the provision of transportation services, the manufacture of vehicles, and the construction of infrastructure—are major economic activities in the State of Georgia," said Mr. Farooq Mughal.
