February 2, 2021 — The Republic of Marshall Islands Ports Authority receives a grant from the US Department of Transport / Federal Aviation Administration to maintain airport safety compliance and to upgrade its airport infrastructures at Amata Kabua International Airport.

A new factor in the Biden Administration is to push is for Climate Change induced concept in airport infrastructures. As noted by Pete Buttigieg, newly confirmed Secretary of Transportation during a recent interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper: “…when I think about the opportunities ahead, I’m thinking about jobs and economic opportunity. I’m thinking about climate. And there’s no way we’re going to do what we must do as a country unless we move the transportation sector forward.” (https://www.ttnews.com/articles/buttigiegs-usdot-priorities-include-climate-jobs-safety)
