Editorial : “Let us become every day a little more players”
In an international economic climate filled with moroseness and pessimism, AIVP is distinguished by its unfailing activity and its confidence in the projects for tomorrow. Our AIVP Days seminar in Barcelona testified to this state of mind resolutely turned towards the new opportunities for the development of port cities, towards innovative projects which are making the port cities of today advanced posts of a responsible economy.
We are living a change in époque in which the questions of the management of resources and that of climate change are becoming more pressing. Nearly everywhere, projects are testifying to these new realities being taken into account by the decision makers. Undeniably, things are advancing, the movement has started. For several years already, AIVP have been putting into value these numerous initiatives of the port cities which are our future. It is also without any doubt for this reason that our worldwide network does not cease to attract new active members. In only a few decades, the world will be profoundly changed and we, stakeholders in the development of our port cities, have, today, the immense responsibility but also the immense privilege in taking part in this change. Instead of witnesses, let us become every day a little more players and let us dare!
President of AIVP
