What the North Adriatic Sea Port Authority does?
As a result of the Legislative Decree. 4 August 2016 n. 169, the North Adriatic Sea Port Authority (NASPA) was established which includes the ports of Venice and Chioggia.
It is a single system for the Venice Lagoon Port, that is, a single geographical, environmental, social and economic context. A system of two ports to serve in a complementary way, each with its own characteristics and specificities, a de facto coinciding market.
The North Adriatic Sea Port Authority is a non-economic public body.
Its task is to direct, plan, coordinate, promote and control port operations. It carries out the maintenance of the common areas, maintains the seabed, supervises the provision of services of general interest, exclusively administers the areas and state property, plans the development of the port territory.
It also coordinates the administrative activities carried out by public bodies in the port area and promotes forms of connection with the back-port and interport logistics systems.
To increase traffic in the Port of Venice, the North Adriatic Sea Port Authority evaluates the international economic context, the current and potential basin of influence, and the state of the port infrastructure. Its action is integrated with the planning tools and guidelines of other public institutions, from the European Union to local authorities.
