‘Facing a change: opportunities or threats for the Baltic market?’ will be the theme of the Baltic Ports Conference 2015 organized by the Baltic Ports Organization and hosted by the Freeport of Riga Authority.
The conference is an associated event with the BPO General Assembly. The meeting will take place in Free Port of Riga Authority headquarter on September 3-4, 2015.
The Baltic maritime market is currently facing a change caused by new market conditions. New geopolitical conditions in the region and weakening of Russian economy have an impact on trade volumes.
The event will focus on how to link TEN-T land based corridor concept with Motorways of the Sea program, what are the financial opportunities for ports, how a new investment plan for EU proposed by Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, would impact the funds secured for transport infrastructure.
