Brazilian ports are the gateways to more than 80% of the goods imported and exported by the country. Investing in the port sector is an on-going priority in Brazil, which is export-dependent for much of its economic growth. But the country's ports are underdeveloped by global standards. "The port sector is critical to our country's development, and so we must consolidate ideas that can remove obstacles to the growth, as well as create conditions for increased port capacity and competitiveness of Brazilian goods and services in the global market", said Wilen Manteli, the President of the Brazilian Association of Port Terminals (ABTP).

Following the success of our first PFI Forum in Casablanca in September 2014, we are very pleased to announce the first Port Efficiency Forum Morocco 2015 – to be held in Casablanca on 25 & 26 February 2015. Once again, we are very pleased to announce that this event is being held under the auspices of Morocco’s Ministry of Equipment, Transport and Logistics, and the Keynote Address will be kindly delivered by H.E. Mr Aziz Rabbah, Minister of Equipment, Transport and Logistics, Morocco.

All ports and terminals these days are aspiring to value creation through revenue increase, new growth engines, cost reduction, heightened efficiency and sustainability. Competitive advantage though differentiation is key – and the integral and unique position of ports as economic and trade drivers makes these values of efficiency even more important.
