The Cruise Dialogue congress which took place from 19 to 21 of February 2020, gathered global experts in Cartagena de Indias (Colombia), to discuss the positive and negative impacts this activity causes in port cities. Diverging opinions showed the different perception of the challenges, but it is clear that better cooperation between ports and cities worldwide is needed. AIVP supported the event with the presentations of our own experts and members.

Alain Lefebvre, Chief Executive of Ports de Lille, gives us more insight into the relationship between these ports and the territory in which they are based.
