Marsaxlokk, Malta (PortSEurope) May 11, 2018 – After Morocco, Spain and Greece, the fourth institutional mission of the International Propeller Clubs of Italy was held in Malta, European Capital of Culture 2018. The mission saw the presence of 45 delegates from all over Italy, led by President Umberto Masucci and vice presidents Riccardo Fuochi and Fabrizio Zerbini, also accompanied by the Director General of the
Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport, Mauro Coletta. “The mission has been very successful in participation, in issues discussed, as visits to port facilities have always allowed better mutual knowledge. The conclusion then with the meeting of one of our small delegation with the Maltese Prime Minister has witnessed the importance of the Italian Maritime Cluster which has invested heavily in Malta in recent years,” Masucci said. The Italian and Maltese maritime clusters can benefit greatly from the growth of traffic in the Mediterranean, an area which concentrates 25% of the container ship traffic in the last six years, the head of Italian maritime and Mediterranean economy research institute, Alessandro Penaro, said. A series of visits to some of Malta’s most significant shipping sites followed: Malta Freeport, Malta Lng Terminal, the Marsaxlokk port, Malta Drydocks and the Malta Maritime Museum.
