The cruise industry and its relations with the cities and ports that play host to its ever bigger liners, carrying ever more passengers, have been transformed over the last decade.
The magazine Cruise Insight has contacted nine associations around the world to gauge their views on these changes and the challenges facing port cities. AIVP was naturally among the first organisations approached to contribute to the report, which has just been published.
Olivier Lemaire, General Manager of AIVP, took the opportunity to reaffirm AIVP’s message and to underline the need for dialogue with all stakeholders in the industry, to redefine a balanced partnership that benefits our port cities and their residents.
