ESPO at 25: Connecting People and Ports
2018 marks the 25th anniversary of the European Sea Ports Organisation, ESPO. On this occasion, ESPO published a book of friends. This book of friends of ESPO gathers memories, anecdotes and reflections of people who have been actively contributing to the work and the achievements of ESPO at some point in the life of this organisation, or are still doing nowadays. It brings stories and contributions from policy makers, academics and other stakeholders who have been working closely with ESPO. Unfortunately, some people that have been instrumental in the life of ESPO passed away. We thank all contributors for keeping the corporate memory alive. We hope that all friends of ESPO, also the many ones that we could not give the floor to in this book, will recognise ESPO in these stories. Since we could only gather 30 contributions, we invite the other friends of ESPO to share their story with us through our website.
Below you can read other contributions we have received. The first new contribution is from Annaleena Mäkilä.
