Cargo Hub Proposal Still in Works, Disappointment
ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – While it’s been nearly two and a half months since the Chinese toured Lambert, there is still no commitment or deal on the cargo hub, leaving airport officials and city residents disappointed.
But, based on prior communication from the Chinese, Missouri Chamber of Commerce commissioner Dan Mehan says he still believes the proposal will happen.
“No one in here is just doing wishful thinking,” he said. “(The optimism) is based on fact and the messages we hear from the Chinese.”
Mehan says a high level Chinese trade delegation will visit Lambert again this weekend, which is a sign that the future of the cargo hub is still in the works.
