What makes a competitive hub in a interconnected world?

An introductory presentation on the theme “What makes a competitive hub?” gave PortEconomics co-director Theo Notteboom during the World Ports Conference of the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) which was held in Baku, Azerbaijan from 8 to 11 May 2018.

Theo moderated also the panel debate on the same theme during which panellists shared experiences from Panama, Djibouti, Trieste and Dubai as well as the EU on how to develop successful logistics hubs. Guimara Tuñón Guerra, Gilles Bergot, Michael Proffitt, Zeno D’Agostino and Aboubaker Omar Hadi contributed to a thought-provoking session on the drivers and impediments of logistics hub development, hubs as part of regional development goals, governance and investment strategies; and the future of hubs.
