Delivering PDI's viewpoints to industry and authorities in Budapest, 28 October 2013
On 28 October 2013, the European River-Sea-Transport Union e.V. (ERSTU) organised a conference in Budapest with the theme “The future of the Danube in an enlarged European Economic Area”. The event brought together about 100 representatives of European inland waterway transport organizations, international shipping organizations and of public authorities. Mr Seitz provided an overview on PDI activities as well as on the LNG Masterplan project. Special emphasis he put on the shortcomings of Hungarian authorities in providing the internationally agreed fairway depth standards. As a follow-up ERSTU and PDI agreed on a closer cooperation and exchanged corresponding membership status.
