PORT AUTONOME DE PARIS (France)
An Economic Interest Group (EIG) comprising the ports of Le Havre, Rouen and Paris (HAROPA), seeks to develop a coherent port network on the Seine axis. The Global project aims to develop transport infrastructure by means of new ports within those Core Network nodes able to resolve Paris Region’s congestion problems.
