#Ports and Finance: Green Deal & Blue Growth
The financing of innovation and infrastructure has always been an essential component of port management. The scarcity of public funds, made more dramatic and pressing by the post-Covid burden, the growing international and national competition between ports and the entry into the field of new aggressive state-owned protagonists, makes the topic dramatically important. The session will provide an overview of trends in the sector, from self-financing to public-private partnerships to new access profiles to risk capital. At the end round table with Port Authorities and Terminal operators.
