As part of a trip to North America, IAPH president Jens Meier visited the Port of Vancouver two weeks ago. Together with Simone Maraschi, chairman of the IAPH Cruise Committee and managing director of Cruise Gate Hamburg, he met with Port of Vancouver’s CEO Peter Xotta who succeeded Robin Silvester last fall. Robin also served as IAPH vice-president for North America. Joining the meeting was the port authority’s harbour master Shri Madiwal, vice-chairman of the IAPH Risk and Resilience Committee. Jens Meier warmly thanked the team at Port of Vancouver for their relentless commitment to the work of IAPH.
