This new issue of our newsletter marks the continuation of the collaboration between the Research Centre of the Naples Port Authority and SRM. The newsletter analyses the port of Naples’ connections with the ports of the Southern Rim of the Mediterranean, as part of an assessment of Italian maritime trade with the countries of the Mediterranean. To round up the analysis, an interview to the Secretary General of the port of Naples, Emilio Squillante, offers a realistic picture of port activity in Naples, and the strategies the Authority is pursuing to become an increasingly integral part of the Mediterranean economy.
Within the cooperation agreement signed in july, 2011, SRM and Assoporti present a report aiming to analyze – in both economic and territorial point of view- problems and opportunities in the port sector. The report contains data and statistics on Italian freight and passenger traffic in the Mediterranean sea. It also includes a section of in-depth interviews to the main personalities of the port sector, starting- in this issue- from Francesco Nerli, President of Assoporti.
The Research Centre of the Port Authority of Naples, in collaboration with SRM, produces a periodic newsletter presenting the main statistics of Italian ports, paying special attention to Campania and Naples. The report is available in the Italian version.
