Kimmo Naski, CEO of Port of HaminaKotka Ltd, has been elected Chairman of the Baltic Ports Organisation (BPO) for the new two-year term.

The BPO was founded almost 30 years ago, in 1991. Its approximately 50 port members include a majority of the foremost seaports on the Baltic Sea. The organisation promotes the shared interests of the Baltic Sea ports and serves as an important industry lobbying body towards the EU. BPO wishes to enhance environmentally friendly thinking on the Baltic Sea, and is also a major player in maritime and port-related research and training. “Throughout its existence, BPO has done a great job in promoting the supervision of interests and networking of the Baltic Sea ports,” says Kimmo Naski.
