Lower Saxony seaports take up position

EMDEN/OLDENBURG/STADE. In late April the Lower Saxony Seaports working group published a position paper for the election in Autumn 2022 (see https://www.seaports.de/en/) and named key areas of action at a federal state level concerning the seaports for the coming legislative term. “Reliable funding through an increase in state funding to at least 50 million euros per annum, a needs-based expansion and maintenance of seaward access, eliminating the bottlenecks in seaport hinterland connectivity and, most importantly, accelerated implementation of infrastructure projects are prerequisites to better assert our competitiveness,” emphasised Michael de Reese, spokesman for the working group. He also made it clear that the ports intend to play their part in the energy transition and achieving climate goals.
