Port of Valencia investigates internationalisation prospects

The Port Authority of Valencia (PAV) has declared its interest in international commerce and the necessity of comprehensive global connection for the industrial fabric.

IMEX and the Alcoi Chamber of Commerce invited Mar Chao, President of Valenciaport, to present her vision as part of a conference aimed at encouraging business growth through exports.

During her presentation, Chao detailed Valenciaport’s trade routes with China, Turkey and Africa and the business opportunities offered by the extensive connectivity of the Valencian docks with these areas of the world.

Chao emphasized: “Digitalisation is fundamental for decarbonisation and for port operations. In logistics, a minute was gold before, but now ‘gold’ is every second.”

Chao closed the conference with a presentation centred on the extensive connectivity of the three Valencian ports that receive and send goods from the five continents.

According to PAV, the aim of the conference was to unravel the possibilities for growth offered by international markets, specifically Southeast Asia, Turkey and Africa.

This month, PAV hosted the first floating solar energy prototype in marine seas.

PAV also raised concerns about the imminent Emissions Trading System (ETS) and its potential impact on Asian and American ship routes.
