Spanish ports industry in recovery

Port Strategy 4 October

María Luisa Guibert, president of Algeposa, has said that recent figures released by Ports of the State clearly show that Spanish ports are beginning to recover from the downturn many have experienced as part of the recent economic downturn.

She noted that the nation’s ports handle 68% of overseas trade, which amounted to 400m tonnes last year. Furthermore, the ports sector generates 8.7% of GDP and employs 1.23% of the total Spanish workforce.
