A new subsidiary Port of Antwerp International (PAI) has been created to implement this strategy succeeding the Antwerp Port Consultancy (APC).”We see a great demand for effective support from a large number of countries. This can be an important leverage point for us to expand Antwerp’s presence abroad. The promotion, training and consultancy activities carried out until now by APEC and APC play a significant role in making Antwerp known worldwide as an important centre of maritime know-how,” says Yannick Dufraimont, director of PAI.His colleague Nico Vertongen continues: “We believe it is logic to progress from training and consultancy to greater involvement in management support, for developing, operating or even investing in foreign ports or networks of ports. The most important foreland projects are actually an extension of our current activities, taking them to the level of implementation.”The Port Authority’s board of directors has therefore given the go-ahead for converting the subsidiary APC to Port of Antwerp International. PAI will put the Port Authority’s maritime foreland policy into practice by acquiring stakes in foreign port projects with a reliable rate of return, located in strategically important regions such as the Middle East, India, Sub-Saharan Africa and Brazil. For this purpose PAI will, in the next few months, recruit new people with economic and technical qualifications.The foreland policy can create stronger commercial links between maritime regions and Antwerp, as well as raising Antwerp’s name recognition and boosting its image, leveraging its know-how and supporting Antwerp port companies abroad.”The landlord model basically remains our starting point for choosing the projects that PAI will carry out or the projects in which it will participate. For example, port management, consultancy, training, support for technical infrastructure projects, marketing etc.” Yannick Dufraimont explains.The partners in these collaboration projects may be public authorities (national or local port authorities), or private companies (port operators, shipping lines, consultancy firms, project developers etc.), or public/private combinations.
Author: Associated Press SHARE Trump won’t campaign for Moore before election WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump will not campaign for Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore before the Dec. 12 special election, a White House official said Monday.Despite public statements in which he raised doubts about the accounts of women who have accused Moore of sexual misconduct, Trump will not to travel to Alabama on Moore’s behalf, said the official, who was not authorized to discuss the president’s plans publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.The president held the door open to campaigning for Moore last week, when he all but endorsed Moore’s candidacy and attacked his Democratic opponent, Doug JonesThe announcement comes as Trump continued to wade into race over the weekend, taking to Twitter to bash Jones.MORE: President Trump discounts accusations against Roy MooreTrump said electing the Democrat as Alabama’s next senator “would be a disaster,” warning of damage to his legislative agenda.“The last thing we need in Alabama and the U.S. Senate is a Schumer/Pelosi puppet who is WEAK on Crime, WEAK on the Border, Bad for our Military and our great Vets, Bad for our 2nd Amendment, AND WANTS TO RAISES TAXES TO THE SKY,” Trump wrote from Florida, referring to Democrats’ congressional leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.Trump has declined to follow the path of other mainstream Republican leaders, who have called on Moore to step aside. Republican lawmakers are considering expelling Moore should he win the seat.For weeks, accusations that Moore, now 70, sexually molested or assaulted two teens, ages 14 and 16 – and tried to date several others – while he was in his 30s have taken center stage in the heated Alabama race. Moore denied the allegations of misconduct and said he never dated “underage” women.Trump’s words could be a boost to the Moore camp, since Democrats’ hopes in the race partly depend upon peeling away Republican support from Moore in the deeply red state.Moore’s campaign quickly touted Trump’s comments on social media and in a fundraising email to supporters that lashed out at Republican leaders as much as it did Jones.MORE: Moore calls sexual misconduct accusations ‘scurrilous,’ ‘false’“President Trump calls them like he sees them. And, he’s got my opponents in D.C. scrambling,” Moore wrote in a fundraising email.The Republican candidate has made limited public appearances since the allegations surfaced earlier this month.Jones, speaking to reporters in Birmingham, shrugged off Trump’s criticisms, saying he would not be a partisan voter. He said Alabamians are focused on issues such as the economy, education and health care.“My record speaks for itself … I think I am very strong on the issues that the people of Alabama care for,” Jones said.Jones, a former federal prosecutor, said he would be an independent voice in the U.S. Senate, similarly to his political mentor, the late U.S. Sen. Howell Heflin, who represented the state for nearly 20 years.Jones’ campaign issued a more biting statement saying, “Roy Moore was unfit for office even before nine Alabama women served as witnesses to all Alabamians of his disturbing conduct.”Trump’s comment in the race signaled that the success of his legislative agenda outweighs widespread concerns from national Republicans, many of whom are repulsed at the prospect of seating Moore.Top Republicans in Congress, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, have called for Moore to leave the race, and the Republican National Committee and the National Republican Senatorial Committee have pulled their support for his campaign.GOP Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina said the Dec. 12 election has become a referendum on “the character of the country” that transcends partisan politics.“In my opinion, and in the opinion of many Republicans and conservatives in the Senate, it is time for us to turn the page because it is not about partisan politics. It’s not about electing Republicans versus Democrats,” Scott said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.”Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who has also called for Moore to step down, said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that Trump is “definitely trying to throw a lifeline to Roy Moore.”But when it comes to Moore, Graham said it’s unclear “what winning looks like.”“If he wins, we get the baggage of him winning and it becomes a story every day about whether or not you believe the women or Roy Moore, should he stay in the Senate, should he be expelled. If you lose, you give the Senate seat to a Democrat at a time we need all the votes we can get,” he said, referring to Republicans’ current 52-48 majority in the Senate.“The moral of the story is: Don’t nominate somebody like Roy Moore who could actually lose a seat that any other Republican could win,” Graham said.Sen. John Thune of South Dakota, the No. 3 Republican in the Senate, said he’d like to see Trump “come out and support what many of us have said and that is that Roy Moore needs to step aside” and “allow somebody else to be a write-in candidate.”He said on “Fox News Sunday” that if Moore ends up winning and comes to Washington in January, he will be the immediate subject of an ethics investigation, “which is going to be a cloud that he’ll be operating in and it’s going to be a distraction for us and for our agenda.”Trump backed incumbent Sen. Luther Strange in the Alabama Republican primary but moved quickly to embrace Moore after he won. The seat opened up after Republican Jeff Sessions was tapped as U.S. attorney general.
