300 Years Port of Duisburg

Duisburg, 16.09.2016 | “In 300 years, the port has never stood still. Frequently, it was a trend-setter and provider of new impulses. We have done much, but there is still lots of work to do,” says Erich Staake. The Chief Executive Officer is speaking about “his” company, Duisburger Hafen AG. On Friday, 16 September 2016, the world's largest inland port is celebrating its 300 year anniversary with a festive ceremony followed by a gala dinner. Almost 500 invited guests from politics, industry, science and culture attended the event at the large white tent on Duisburg's “Mercatorinsel” - headed by Federal Transportation Minister Alexander Dobrindt representing Federal Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel, who had to decline the invitation due to the EU “Brexit Summit”, as well as North Rhine-Westphalia’s Premier Hannelore Kraft and Duisburg's Lord Mayor Sören Link.
