CMP in Almedalen 2018

Almedalen Week is when politicians, businesses, municipalities and media all gather for a few intensive days in Visby on Gotland. This year CMP will be organising a seminar in Öresundshuset.

The seminar will be held on Tuesday 3 July from 13:30-14:15 in the Öresundshuset venue, focusing on how more freight can make the move from road to sea according to the following programme outline:

How can the full potential of shipping be realised?
Transporting freight by ship is efficient and climate-smart, but what is required to move more freight from road to sea? Shipping will become a competitive and sustainable element of the European transport system if important Swedish ports are prioritised in the development of modern infrastructure. At the same time, the conditions should be equal for all operators in the industry. Is it possible to simplify the administrative processes in shipping and can the capacity on important routes be developed to increase the potential of shipping? Industry operators need to collaborate and, in a dialogue with politicians, help to create a sustainable transport system.

Taking part on the panel are Katarina Norén, Director General of the Swedish Maritime Administration, Nina Ekelund, Executive Director of the Haga Initiative, Boriana Åberg (Moderate), member of the Transport Committee, Rikard Larsson (Social Democrat), member of the Transport Committee and Ulrika Prytz Rugfelt, PR & Corporate Communications Manager, Copenhagen Malmö Port.
