Rome, Italy (PortSEurope) December 22, 2021 – The Ministry of Infrastructure and Sustainable Mobility (Mims) has set up the maritime forum to open a permanent dialogue with trade union associations and to deepen general and specific issues concerning ports and their economic and social sustainability, and environmental contribution. Sustainable infrastructures, effects of the climate crisis, employment and gender equality, training, quality of work and safety, simplifications,
competitiveness and digitization, concessions and taxation are among the priorities that will be addressed by the forum. Membership will include the Ministry, port authorities, the main logistics stakeholders and the representative associations of port authorities, workers, terminal operators, shipowners and mooring operators.“We wanted to create a place for discussion, where to develop strategies, make concrete proposals and find shared solutions to make the sector make a leap in quality”, said Minister Enrico Giovannini, inaugurating the permanent table on the sea today. “A strong spirit of collaboration is needed, also in consideration of the strong investments in the ports envisaged by the National Recovery and Resilience Plan, which will have an important impact in the ecological transition process. We are facing an unprecedented investment and a great European challenge. The Plan will strengthen the competitiveness of our country, reduce inequalities and contribute to the fight against the climate crisis”.  Copyright (C) PortSEurope.
