Port of Quebec: building for the future with citizens
Denis DAVOULT16 April 2018

In June, the Port of Quebec will host AIVP’s 16th World Conference. The event will also mark the thirtieth anniversary of AIVP’s creation, and the “Next Generation” will be at the heart of the debate. How is the future of the Port of Quebec being shaped? What are the four major projects now seen as key to its future and that of the city’s residents?

At AIVP’s World Conference in 2012, Mario Girard, President & CEO of the Port of Quebec and Vice-President of AIVP, emphasised the importance of developing port projects in complete transparency, involving citizens and the local community. This focus on dialogue between the city, port and citizens also led the Port of Quebec, in 2016, to sign the Port Center Missions Charter and join the AIVP Port Center network. The four projects described here perfectly illustrate this commitment to building the future of the port city of Quebec together, as part of an inclusive approach. Our 16th World Conference will no doubt afford an opportunity for a first-hand look at this strategy for a Next Generation port city.

The Port of Quebec is a member of AIVP since 2011

Creation of an Italian national foundation (SILP) for future port-logistics training
18 April 2018

The new body aims to provide a forum for contact between public institutions and private enterprise, in order to tackle the phenomena and processes driving changes in the port workplace. Automation, digitisation, the internet of things, and the rise of mega-ships all represent challenges that need to be faced quickly, in terms of jobs and the new skills needed. Genoa was chosen as the site for the Foundation by its creators: Isfort, employment agency Randstad, and the RINA Group.

Ports are key to accelerating trade in order to boost development in Africa
18 April 2018

This is not a new observation, but was again highlighted in a recent report by PWC Africa. Besides infrastructures, investment needs to be targeted at measures to improve the efficiency of ports and logistics. Otherwise, there is a risk that no benefit will be seen from new ports and terminals. Finally, as underlined by UNCTAD, education and training is equally strategically important.
