VB Project Idea Golden Corridors
The North Sea 'Golden Corridor's are the river estuaries which contain major ports, significant wealth creation activity and logistics infrastructure. They often have a complex river hinterland and significant river trade linking to the ports. These factors provide both opportunities and challenges for trade and logistics. Many local, regional and port authorities may be stakeholders, together with commercial organisations, which makes governance and partnership a challenge.
Golden Corridors is a project idea which aims to bring together 8-10 ports and hinterland corridors in different EU countries bordiering the North Sea. Parners will have shared and complementary interests, based on trading activities, logistical challenges and comparable geographical locations.
Golden corridors partners may include several stakeholders such as port authoriites, local/regional governament, universities. In each location thier will be a lead partner to coordinate the work.
