During Almedalen week, when politicians and business people meet, CMP is arranging two seminars. The second seminar concerns the significance of the ports for trade and industry and how important the so-called Core Ports are, i.e. the main ports designated by the EU.
There are five Core Ports in Sweden. The ports play a major role in the development of trade and industry, but are also important hubs in both the national and international transport system.
”We will be discussing the ports’ significance at the seminar, but also what is required to enable us to continue contributing to and developing the European transport network. For example, legislation and issues pertaining to infrastructure often extend to the Swedish border. To achieve effective and sustainable transport systems, we have to cooperate across borders”, Johan Röstin says.
Besides Johan Röstin, the seminar will include, Johan Castwall, CEO, Ports of Stockholm, Henrik Vuorinen, CEO, Luleå Port, Magnus Kårestedt, CEO, Port of Gothenburg, Tommy Halén, CEO, Trelleborg Port, together with Per Bondemark, Chairman of the Swedish Shippers’ Council, Karin Svensson-Smith, Chair of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Transport and Communications and Boriana Åberg, member of the same Committee. The seminar will be led by Catarina Rolfsdotter-Jansson.
CMP's seminar on Core Ports will be held on Wednesday 6 July, 14.45 – 15.45 in Öresundshuset, Hästgatan 1 in Visby.
