Joint project between Busan and Barcelona
The Port of Barcelona and the Busan Port Authority (BPA) are jointly promoting a project to develop a logistics centre in Barcelona. This is the first joint initiative in which the two ports are working to revitalise trade and provide a stable logistics platform for companies doing business between Northeast Asia and Southern Europe.
In order to guarantee the success of this project, the Ports of Barcelona and Busan will create a joint venture to manage and operate the new hub effectively.
The president of the Port of Barcelona, Mercè Conesa, explained during her speech at an online seminar that the implementation of this project will boost logistics flows between Northeast Asia and southern Europe through both ports and facilitate the distribution of Korean products in Europe and, potentially, in North Africa, in a very competitive way.
