Princely mission to Japan
Port of Antwerp-Bruges is participating in the princely economic mission to Japan this week. Japan is a leading country in the automotive sector, with the port of Nagoya as a major car port hub, while Zeebrugge is considered the gateway for vehicles in Europe.
In this context, a Sisterport/Partnership Agreement was signed on December 7 by Jacques Vandermeiren, CEO Port of Antwerp-Bruges, and Yuji Kamata, Executive Vice President of Port of Nagoya. This agreement is a perpetuation of a long, fruitful relationship between the ports that dates back to 1988 and has already been renewed in 2013.
