Valencia, Spain (PortSEurope) January 30, 2017 – Valencia port authority (Autoridad Portuaria de Valencia) president Aurelio Martinez considers that, regardless of the policy pursued by US President Donald Trump, “what countries should do is promote free trade, since if we get involved in a protectionist war, we will all lose.” Martinez made the remarks at a lunch organised by the Spanish association of directors AED
in Valencia. He said that maritime traffic “will not grow as much as in the past” because the world “enters an era of protectionism.” Under the title “The port of Valencia, an infrastructure of the future”, the president of Valencia port highlighted the figures of the port, whose “success is based on a privileged geographical position.” It thus put in value the 19,000 direct and indirect jobs that the infrastructure generates, the more than 5,000 trucks that enter every day in the facilities, the thousand ports with which Valencia harbour is connected and the more than 100 regular lines that operate at the port.
