25 new members – 2016 was an exceptional year for AIVP

2016 was marked by a very positive balance for AIVP, with 25 new members joining the network. There was strong recruitment of professionals. The “local authorities” and “port authorities” groups recorded a stable, regular number of new members.

The growing interest of professionals shows that the issues affecting port-cities are not only of interest to local and port authorities, but that representatives of the private sector also understand the interests and issues involved.

This was the message which came accross at the Rotterdam Conference in October 2016: “Crossovers”, creating links between the city, the port, companies and citizens. It was also a way of getting these different actors to understand that they share common problems related with transport, the economy, climate change and social integration.

AIVP intends to pursue its development and to convince new organisations of the importance of reflecting on today’s subjects which will make tomorrow’s port city.

We welcome these new members to our association with its ever richer experiences and its steadily developing network!
