This week, Stig travels to Japan to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Port of Kobe. In honour of this anniversary, the port has organised a conference. Stig is one of the speakers.
Port of Kobe
The Port of Kobe is one of Japan’s largest sea ports. For the international conference, the port authority has invited players that represent the greatest ports from all over the globe, including delegates from more than 20 ports in Asia. The theme of the conference is port to city relationships, with for example, port areas in transition. The port of Kobe hopes to share information on maritime affairs in the Asian region.
Stig will speak on the Rotterdam port city project Stadshavens, how to collaborate with different parties and what kind of development plan was made. Stig will focus on the relationship between city and port.
