Miriam Maes, chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Port of Rotterdam Authority: “The impact of the corona crisis on the Port Authority, the implementation of the new business strategy and the challenges of a number of important investments in infrastructure, digitisation and energy transition are complex and crucial for the future of the port. Allard Castelein plays an essential role in the realisation of these projects.
