Rome, Italy (PortSEurope) July 28, 2019 – The Presidents of the Italian port system (AdSPs – Autorita’ di Sistema Portuale) met to start a reorganization process of Assoporti (Associazione Porti Italiani/the Italian port association).
They discussed a proposal to amend the associative statute that aims to make the association’s activities are more efficient in order to face the many changes taking place and to ensure that all Italian port interests are represented.
In summary, the new structure will be composed of the president and four vice presidents representative of the macro-geographical areas of country, and a general secretary to follow the administrative activities. The new statute reflects the indications expressed by all the AdSPs, and is the result of a broad sharing of the objectives of the association. An associated activity is planned for the association which, in addition to dealing with what is attributed to it by law, is to provide a support service important for the maritime-port cluster.
The assembly was also the occasion to take note of the end of the mandate of the General Secretary Francesco P. Mariani, to whom all the presidents have expressed deep gratitude for the work done with passion and dedication in these years in favour of the Italian port system. On the sidelines of the Assembly, President Daniele Rossi commented that the statutory passage represented an important moment for reconstruction of the unity of the Italian port system, and is testimony to the will of the AdSPs to deal with the current critical issues in a cohesive manner.
