A SPECIAL MESSAGE… FROM THE SECRETARY GENERAL OF THE INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF PORTS & HARBORS (IAPH) Ports around the world, though in the midst of the economic difficulties, should move ahead with continued investment to improve productivity and expand capacity. This was unanimously agreed by the world port community, which met in Genoa, Italy, at the World Ports Conference of the IAPH. Unless ports continue their efforts to prepare for the economic recovery, they will be too late to cope with the demand once the economy, which relies on global logistics networks, re-bounds. Ports & Harbors is the official journal of IAPH – the only worldwide organisation of port authorities. IAPH represents about 200 ports of some 90 maritime countries as well as 140 port-related public and private organisations. The member ports together handle nearly 90% of the world’s container traffic and some 60% of the world maritime trade. IAPH is proactively addressing a range of issues facing the world’s ports both among its members and at international forums such as the International Maritime Organisation and International Labour Organisation. Ports & Harbors has long proven to be one of the most recognized mediums for port executives and professionals

around the world. It reports on the key issues of common interest to the world’s ports, ranging from port development and operations through port safety, security and environment to logistics and IT applications. Ports & Harbors provides not only the latest information and examples of best practices but is also an international platform to exchange views and opinions. I trust you will find Ports & Harbors of great value to your business and a reliable and effective way to disseminate your message throughout the world port community. Dr Satoshi Inoue Secretary General, IAPH
