The programme of this week of discovery aimed at making the various facets of port life better understood by the public and schoolchildren. The “Port and the sea” visit for instance enabled the college students present to take size –and the outsize – of container activity thanks to the commentaries of the guides and a very close look at the vessels alongside that day in Port 2000. This success shows, as if it was necessary, a real interest in the port world often ignored by the wider public.
AIVP was a partner of this event organised by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Le Havre, the City of Le Havre, and Grand Port Maritime du Havre. See the detailed programme (24-30 September 2012) : www.havre.cci.fr
