Hundreds of delegations from 88 member countries are taking part in the 30th International Association of Port and Harbors (IAPH) World Ports Conference starting from 7 May – 12 May 2017 at Nusa Dua Convention Centre, Bali.  The conference is discussing a number of important agendas. Acting Secretary of Coordinating Minister for Marine Affairs, Ridwan Djamaluddin said in Nusa Dua, Bali on Wednesday that the main discussion which becomes concerned is about sustainability of the seaport. Meanwhile, Pelindo as the organizing committee will deliver the plan of sea toll and ambition of President Joko Widodo to make Indonesia as the world's maritime axis.

“…Sustainability is a problem in technology, I think we have seen some seaports in Indonesia, which have applied green port concept, and used high technology, and increased efficiency. Because president’s message as the leader of the government always says that Indonesia’s seaports must give the best and efficient services.”

Meanwhile, Head of the organizing Committee who is also Executive Director of PT. Pelabuhan Indonesia II (Persero), Elvyn G. Masassya said that to create the sustainable seaport is the main attention of the country, especially Pelindo which should become the main focus to be able to compete with other seaports in the world. He also hoped that the annual meeting can produce various things. The important point is how all members change their opinion and experience each other in developing seaport sector in respective country. (Marno/Trans- by Yati)
