  • Pour Feport la directive de la CE doit être sérieusement amendée
    Pour Feport (Federation of European Private Port Operators), la proposition de directive de la CE sur la libéralisation des services portuaires - Port Package - doit, si l’on veut poursuivre dans cette voie, être sérieusement amendée et ladite organisation regrette que la CE ne se soit pas plus concentrée sur la concurrence entre ports. Dans le rapport que vient de remettre Feport il est dit qu’au sein de son organisation on est convaincu que sans règles claires en ce qui concerne le financement des ports (ligne directrice sur les aides d’Etat) établies au niveau de la Communauté un environnement opérationnel approprié ne sera jamais atteint. Il est impératif d’assurer des relations financières transparentes entre Etat, autorités portuaires et opérateurs portuaires.
