Optimed Project will participate in the International Logistics Exhibition (SIL) in Barcelona, June 9th to 10th: "An ideal opportunity to discuss with international operators and to promote Optimed project" - says the Councillor for Transport of the Autonomous Region of Sardinia, Mr. Massimo Deiana. The project proposes a new network scheme for the maritime trade between the northern-western and the southern-eastern shores of the Mediterranean "that would identify Sardinia, and in particular the port of Porto Torres, as the centre of important commercial relations across the basin" continues the Councillor.
The Steering Committee meeting of the project "OPTIMED - Rationalising Mediterranean Sea Ways: from Southern-Eastern to Northern- Western ports ", will take place on Monday 1st and Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014 in Barcelona, at the conference room of the Casa Llotja de Mar, Passeig d'Isabel II.
