October 2014

The past few months have been eventful months for our Association. In October our Delegates travelled to Paris, France for the fall meetings. We were warmly welcomed in the building of Union des Ports de France and Port de Paris hosted lunch after the Council meeting on board of the ‘Cercle de la Mer’, from where we could admire the Eiffel Tower and enjoy a nice view on the Seine River.



Further on in this newsletter you will also learn about the very successful conferences held both in Manila, Philippines and in Iquique, Chile. Thanks to these events, PIANC certainly gained a new spot on the world map! The EnviCom Commissioners travelled all the way to Russia and Finland and as usual, the YP’s haven’t been sitting still either! You will read all about it in this issue of ‘Sailing Ahead’!


Unfortunately, we also received some very sad news from Norway: on October 24, 2014 the ever so charming Mr Arne Fuglum, Honorary Member of PIANC, suddenly passed away during a family vacation. A more extensive obituary will be published in the next e-newsletter. Mr Fuglum will be truly missed and remembered by the PIANC family all over the world. PIANC would like to express its sincere condolences to his loved ones.
