There will be a discussion about, among other issues, the financing of the development of port infrastructure, spatial planning, coexistence of ports and cities, as well the influence of automation on the development of ports and terminals. Participants will pay special attention to the New Silk Route and Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) – these initiatives will be the main subject of the third day of the conference.
