Naples, Italy (PortSEurope) February 11, 2021 – Andrea Annunziata, new president of Autorita’ di Sistema Portuale del Mar Tirreno Centro-Settentrionale (AdSP – Centre-North Tyrrhenian Sea Port Authority), has said that he sees tourism is the vacation of the city. He said that the benefits of extra traffic through the Suez Canal would benefit Mediterranean ports, but not for Naples. Likely beneficiaries were more likely to
be Gioro Tauro, the largest seaport in Southern Italy and with dedicated, large cargo functions such as container handling. He added that ports like Naples and Salerno would not be able to handle more containers than at present containers beyond current levels. Speaking to the ANSAMed news agency, Annunziata said that Naples could jointly develop cargo and cruise ship activities. It would work on special economic zones (Zes) for business and the return of cruise ship passengers after the Covid-19 coronavirus crisis. On tourism, Annunziata, commented that Naples offers history, architecture and landscapes to tourists, and Campania has many Unesco sites. The port and city will work on it by offering better logistics, safety and respect for the environment for when the cruises start again. Copyright (C) PortSEurope. All Rights Reserved. 2021.
