Port Authorities » IAPH World Ports
Its principle objective is to develop and foster good relations and
cooperation among all ports and harbors in the world by proving a forum
to exchange opinions and
share experiences on the latest trends of port management and
operations. IAPH strives to emphasize and promote the fact that ports
form a vital link in the waterborne
transportation and play such a vital role in today’s global economy.
The founding fathers of the IAPH believed five decades ago that
ports could contribute to create a more peaceful world by helping world
trade grow and develop, as
explicitly shown in our motto, “World Peace Through World Trade -
World Trade Through World Ports”. As contained in its Constitution, IAPH
is committed to promoting
the world peace and the welfare of mankind as its ultimate goal.
