8th GreenPort Congress, held during Antwerp Green Week, will be an international affair
Hosted by the Port of Antwerp, the 2013 GreenPort Congress is set to be a truly international affair with delegates coming from Australia, Ghana, India, Malaysia and Nigeria, as well as from across Europe.  Nearly 200 environmental specialists from more than 60 port authorities, terminal operators and other members of the global port community will be in attendance and, with the new format designed to facilitate networking and discussion Antwerp, from 9-11 October 2013, will undoubtedly be a lively pace to be.

Other events taking place during Antwerp Green Week include the release of the Port of Antwerp’s 2nd Sustainability Report, whilst the World Port Climate Initiative (WPCI) LNG Working Group and the European Sea Ports Organisation (ESPO) Sustainable Development Committee and the ‘Clean Air in Ports’ workshop for Naturschutzbund Deutschland (NABU), have also chosen to meet in Antwerp on the days prior to the GreenPort Congress.

This year’s programme will follow the themes of the ESPO Green Guide – Exemplify, Enable, Engage, Encourage and Enforce - and each session will start with two plenary keynote speeches; an overview and a state of play presentation. The session will then breakdown into three working groups, involving all sectors of the port community, which will hear further presentations which will, in turn, stimulate discussion and debate.  The findings of each group will then be presented by the group moderators, all port environmental specialists, to the rest of the audience in a plenary session.

The four main topics to be covered will be:  Air quality management in Ports, Waste and materials management in port areas, Managing the direct impact on the local community, Environmental reporting and communication.

But it won’t all be hard work for participants as this year’s host, the Port of Antwerp, has organised a Welcome Reception that will be held in Antwerp’s beautiful City Hall, a Gala Dinner at The Ark, which is located in the port area and which will include entertainment throughout, and a visit to the Port.

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
