A new reform, named after Mr. Delrio (the Italian Minister of Infrastructure and Transports) is going to give a new connotation to the Italian port system, for the relaunch of its portuality and logistics. The Delrio reform is part of a national strategic plan designed to boost development to the economy and to foreign trade through modernization of transport, logistics and services. An important part of this plan is the recently approved “South Decree”, in which a specific Article establishes the creation of Special Economic Zones in Southern Italy. Two of these, in Campania and Calabria, have been promptly approved by the respective regional governments and will begin to operate in the short term, while others will follow.


The International Propeller Clubs of Italy has taken the opportunity of the Hong Kong Maritime Week to organize a large delegation (see tentative delegation list) including major players of the Italian maritime and logistics sector, to present the Italian port system, the new laws that will regulate its reorganization and the emergence of new Special Economic Zones, the goals that the Italian port system aims to achieve and the opportunities for Hong Kong companies to take advantage of the Delrio reform and the new Italian Special Economic Zones.


The HAFFA Chairman Mr. Brian Wu will deliver a welcome note and there will be a signing ceremony of an MOU of cooperation between HAFFA and Spediporto (Italian Freight Forwarder Association) at the seminar.


All members are cordially invited to join the seminar. You will not only learn in advance all the new opportunities open to the world of logistics and international transport in the important Mediterranean basin, but you will also meet the Italian delegates and may establish strategic partnerships in several Italian ports and who are looking for partners in Hong Kong to develop their businesses in Asia. Please find attached the pamphlet for the details programme rundown.
