Promising headways during the MEDPorts 2021 mid-year General Assembly

The MEDports Association held this afternoon its mid-year General Assembly!


The agenda was busy, and discussions were animated. Several decisions were taken:

  • Development of the staff exchange program destinated to the intern and young employees.
  • The implementation of the MEDports Training program for 2021-2022 with the main subjects: Cybersecurity, Energy Transition Management, Supply Chain Resilience, Innovative Subsidiaries for Sustainable Port Activities, Digital Transforamtion and Smart Ports, Supply Chain.
  • Organization of a webinar dedicated to fresh perishable goods in 2021 – more details to come.
  • Active participation of the MEDports of the Taranto Port Days.

The main works of our 3 Technical Committees were presented and constructive discussions emerged and contributed to pave the way for the organization and execution of further events and projets!

A great number of Mediterranean ports were represented at a high level. It was also the first time we welcame Durrës Port to our General Assembly in the person of Afroviti Goge!

This GA was the occasion to present the 2020 statistics of the Members. Despite the circumstances, Med ports stayed resilient to the crisis, with more than 700 Mt of traffic (decrease of only 4%).

Thank you all for being present!
