Lies takes over AS chair of the NPorts Supervisory Board

OLDENBURG. In December, Olaf Lies, Minister for Economic Affairs, Transport, Construction and Digitalisation for Lower Saxony, was appointed Chairman of the Supervisory Board of NPorts, succeeding Dr Bernd Althusmann, who stepped down from the political arena. “Our ports play a crucial role in light of current crises. We are the gateway to the world and the hub for Germany’s energy supply. I am really pleased to be able to work alongside a well-established NPorts team, who show time and again that the terms “economic clout” and “sustainability” lie side by side,” remarked Lies. Other members of the Supervisory Board include Anka Dobslaw (Ministry for the Environment, Energy and Climate Protection for Lower Saxony), Birgit Diers (Lower Saxony’s Ministry of Finance), Sascha Gatena (NPorts), Uwe Jacob (Ministry for Economics, Transport, Construction and Digitalisation of Lower Saxony) and Professor Kerstin Lange (Jade University of Applied Sciences).
