Surabaya (ANTARA News) – Indonesia will host the 30th World Ports Conference of the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) in 2017, the spokesperson of the state port operator PT Pelabuhan Indonesia (Pelindo) III Edi Prayitno noted here on Friday.

“In 2017, Pelindo I, II, III, and IV will be active IAPH members to host and hold the biannual conference that will take place at the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center on May 7-12, 2017,” Edi stated.

The conference would serve as a platform to share experiences and common interests on certain issues faced by port officials globally.

Currently, Pelindo I, II, and III are holding a preparation meeting in Bali, which is being attended by more than 1.5 thousand members and delegations from around the world.

“Pelindo, a state-owned enterprise involved in the management of Indonesian ports, must actively play an important role in local and global port activities, one of which is by participating in the IAPH,” he pointed out.

The conference is considered as one of the measures to deepen business relations with other port officials in the world in addition to improving and updating their knowledge.

“This conference is expected to be a potential forum for Indonesian seaport businesspersons to mutually promote ideas and products along with serving as a means of promotion and learning about port management in the country,” affirmed Edi.

The IAPH, established in 1955, represents more than 200 ports in 90 countries, with total cargo being serviced reaching 60 percent of the global trade by sea, as well as nearly 80 percent of the flow of containers around the world.

In addition, individuals and organizations that are interested or are involved in a variety of port and maritime businesses in this organization are the associate members.

“The IAPH is a non-profit and non-governmental organization that is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan,” Edi added.
