The project "TEN ECOPORT – Transnational Enhancement of ECOPORT 8 network" was presented to the participants at the International Conference of European Seaports

The targets and main activities of the project TEN ECOPORT were presented on the sidelines at the traditional annual conference of ESPO, which for the first time in its 10-year history, took place in a country from the Black sea region.
In the light of long tradition of ESPO at the Conference a considerable attention was devoted to the development of the EU policies in the field of maritime transport and related economic activities.
The overall theme of the forum this year was Port Development through Cooperation – Towards New Synergies. In the Conference Programme special attention was paid to the development of the TEN-Т corridors and motorways of the sea and overcome the negative effects of the economic crisis through the mechanisms of partnership and cooperation.
Bulgarian Ports Infrastructure Company together with the National Institute of Hydrology and Meteorology of the Bulgarian Academy of Science presented the highlights and targets jointly implemented with 14 more partners under the international project TEN ECOPORT – Transnational Enhancement of ECOPORT8 network, funded by the Transnational Cooperation Programme South East Europe.
The project aims to create a sustainable model for partnership between the ports, local authorities and all stakeholders in the implementation of advanced models for environmental protection. TEN ECOPORT is the continuation of the successfully completed project ECOPORT8, within which was created the first port network for development, strengthening and exchange of coordinated initiatives in introducing environmental criteria in the management of port operations.
The Conference was attended by members of EU Parliament, representatives of the European Commission and personally the Vice-President and Commissioner for Transport, Mr. Siim Kallas and the newly elected Bulgarian Minister of Transport and Communications, Mr. Daniel Papazov.
