Area Description: As indicated on the Chamber Southwest website, "Southwest Louisiana is home to a robust and diversified economy anchored by the petrochemical, education, manufacturing, healthcare and hospitality industries. The region’s strategic location along the Gulf of Mexico contributes greatly to its strong petrochemical industry, which is led by such companies as Axiall, CITGO Petroleum, PPG Industries, and Phillips 66. This position affords businesses access to three developing liquefied natural gas pipelines and several active ports, including the Port of Lake Charles (one of the largest deep-water port in the U.S.), West Calcasieu Port, the East and West Cameron Ports, Mermentau River Port, and Vinton Port. Calcasieu Parish’s rich history combined with a modern, diversified economy and numerous recreational opportunities make this area a wonderful place to live and visit. The petrochemical industry is the mainstay economically for the parish, and the past decade has seen the aerospace and gaming industries broaden that base. The Port of Lake Charles is accessible to ocean-going vessels and is only 34 miles from the Gulf of Mexico, the closest of any deep-water port in Louisiana. Chennault International Airpark is a major feature for the area with more than 10,000 feet of runway, capable of handling most commercial aircraft. Lake Charles is the home of McNeese State University, a four-year, fully accredited university, as well as Sowela Technical Community College, one of Louisiana's largest vocational schools. An abundance of streams, rivers and lakes along with museums, art galleries and festivals make the parish a true paradise."
