April 19: Interview with Francesco Nerli - Chairman of Assoporti

nerliFrancesco Nerli, chairman of Assoporti, who participated at the event, made a positive contribution, defining the GAIA Project as a very important initiative that marks a significant and useful course undertaken by the Levante Port Authority since it regards non only the management of the port and the cooperation with Igoumenitsa, but also because it represents something useful for the whole Italian port system.

According to Nerli, GAIA helps to reflect on a fundamental aspect for Italian ports that is computerization, which allows to systematize and make operative all data and information. This is what in European terms is defined a Port Community System. Therefore, it is essential that such activities should be considered as an institutional duty for the Port Authorities and not a mere service made available to port companies and users
