The number of international travelers passing through Hartsfield Atlanta International Airport anually will more than double to seven million by 2010, predicted Paul T. Robinson, senior partner of the Atlanta-based law firm Robinson & Dixon, P.C., at a March 20 seminar.
That number compares to three million in 1995, Mr. Robinson told attendees at the event at the Grand Hyatt Atlanta, formerly the Hotel Nikko, sponsored by the German American Chamber of Commerce of the Southern U.S.
In terms of international freight, he added, volume is projected to grow from 1996’s 150,000 metric tons to 400,000 metric tons by 2010.
International trade also reaches Atlanta through the ports of Brunswick and Savannah, which lead the South Atlantic area of the U.S. in cargo handled in foreign commerce, said Mr. Robinson.
