PIANC Resolution 2004
Navigation for Sustainable Growth
Fukuoka, Japan - 11. Mai 2004
Currently Asia is experiencing a high degree of industrial and economic growth. Developing economies in other regions aspire to achieve the same. To sustain such growth in the highly competitive global market, efficient (safe and secure) ports and waterway systems are essential.
PIANC is a leading world organisation dedicated to economically and environmentally sustainable waterways development, through its global network of members and technical activities. In its annual general meeting held in the port city of Fukuoka, Japan, it resolved to support the emerging growth regions in achieving:
technologically innovative and cost-effective solutions for development of harbours and waterways,
their safe and secure operations, and
co-operation from the international community to achieve such objectives.
