Interview with Emilie Gravier, Director of Port Development and Promotion,
Port Autonome de Strasbourg – PAS
“Once at the heart of the medieval and modern city, the port of Strasbourg was for most of the 20th century located on a site some distance away. The city has now expanded to join the port on the banks of the Rhine, restoring the port of Strasbourg to its urban character, and adding extra responsibility,“ explains Emilie Gravier. The response includes a raft of measures, including developments in the port’s central zone in conjunction with urban projects in the Deux-Rives district, actions to improve urban mobility and optimising traffic flows, better integration between the port, city and natural environment, efforts to ensure the best use of port spaces and landscaping, and citizen-facing initiatives. All of these measures are intended to reflect the additional layer of responsibility and optimise city-port integration.
The Port Autonome de Strasbourg is a member of AIVP since 1989

In the 1990s the necessity to stop the steady decrease of Port of Rijeka traffic volume imposed a new strategy and development plans to re-boost and ensure the competitiveness of the Port of Rijeka.
The Rijeka Gateway Project is now entering in a decisive implementing phase. The Port and the City of Rijeka are both AIVP members since many years. M. Vojko Obersnel, Mayor of Rijeka City, discussed with us the main stakes and challenges of this project and how it will enhance the attractiveness of the Port and the City, giving to the Port City of Rijeka a new role on the international scene.
