President and CEO of the Baltimore County Chamber of Commerce, Brent Howard, Believes SCMAGLEV is the Infrastructure Project Maryland Needs to Spur Economic Activity throughout the Region

Northeast Maglev is thrilled to have the support of the Baltimore County Chamber of Commerce, President and CEO, Brent Howard for the development of the SCMAGLEV project. 

With the Northeast Corridor being one of the nation’s most dense and economically productive areas, Howard believes that SCMAGLEV will be a “game-changer” for the region. A 15-minute trip connecting Baltimore to Washington, D.C. will provide small and large businesses the opportunity to “connect to markets they never believed they could reach.”

“Baltimore-Washington Rapid Rail’s project is an exciting opportunity for our region to be home to the fastest and safest train the world,” Howard states, and will “encourage economic development in Baltimore County both directly and indirectly.”

As President and CEO, Howard believes that SCMAGLEV will bring a “big impact on our business” and is looking forward to working with the Northeast Maglev team to ensure that  SCMAGLEV brings a windfall of economic growth for business and families in the area.
