Why Should Port Authorities be Leaders in Maritime City Development?

Monday, 16 May

4:30 pm - 4:45 pm (GST) / 16/may/2022 11:30 pm - 16/may/2022 11:45 pm
Maritime city development is rarely led by port authorities, which is odd given that their hybrid nature makes them the perfect interface between maritime business interests and government. In this session, Kaity Arsoniadis, Senior Policy Advisor at the Shipping Federation of Canada and former Executive Director of the Vancouver International Maritime Centre, will discuss why port authorities should take leadership in promoting their cities as maritime capitals.
