In addition to the usual professional contacts that take place in this fair, the event hosts round tables and conferences where the different actors contribute their views. The general director of the Port of Barcelona, José Alberto Carbonell, has stated: “It seemed that We have found a perfect balance and it has practically broken. Barcelona is already a ‘hub’ -node- of the first order, with a 15% railway quota, and has regretted that maritime transport does not move decisively towards decarbonisation, a commitment that the tourism sector has made. In addition, he wanted to make it clear that we are at the right time to accelerate the transformation of the railway, both because of the greater interest in sustainability and because major works are beginning to come to an end. is how the Mediterranean Corridor can be.
