Saint-Nazaire: Collaborative effort the key to port strategy

Denis DAVOULT10 April 2017

Interview with Jean-Pierre Chalus, Chairman of the Executive Board of Nantes Saint-Nazaire Port. Nantes Saint-Nazaire Port is a member of AIVP since 1990

We recently spoke to David Samzun, Mayor of Saint-Nazaire, about plans to reroute the Boulevard des Apprentis. The scheme will benefit all stakeholders, by stimulating business for economic operators in the area, while preserving quality of life for local residents. The redevelopment of Saint-Nazaire’s port and industrial zone is a key plank of Nantes Saint-Nazaire Port’s strategic project for 2015-2020, which is focused on three priorities: “being at the heart of existing and emerging industries”, “guaranteeing performance for port industrial facilities” and “following a shared policy for the sustainable development of port estuary spaces”.
