LEGISLATIVE AND MARITIME
Port Union members have many needs, which is dependent on the satisfaction of expediently prepared legislation. Ports Association in recent years has proven to be a good partner to various state agencies and the EU in the legislative process has become accepted practice.
Joint activities are necessary and effective for the current business plan. Given the well-established practice, the organization of events twice a year in spring and autumn, practical and feasible. At other times, probably unrealistic. This, too, is a novelty, a joint organization of the event as a delegate to the members. Determine the specific operator, the time and the port business-related topics.
This plan is not final, because a lot of questions that need to be developed, emerging and ongoing operatively. Experience shows that the Union has to react quickly and actively.
