Espo Pleads For A Strong Connecting Europe Facility To Support The EUR 48 Billion European Port Investment Needs


The European Sea Ports Organisation (ESPO) has submitted its contribution to the public consultation in preparation of the new Connecting Europe Facility (CEF II) for the financial period 2021-2028. To prepare its submission, ESPO commissioned a study to investigate the future investment needs of European ports, as well as the past ability of ports to benefit from the different EU financial instruments.

The study will be officially presented at the forthcoming ESPO conference “Investing in the port of tomorrow” taking place on 31 May and 1 June in Rotterdam.

We have the pleasure to welcoming Mr Eamonn O’reilly, Chairman of the ESPO, at the Ferry Shipping Summit. Mr O’Reilly has been serving as Chief Executive of the Dublin Port Company since 2010.
