APEC guides

When on site visits, APEC relies on the aid of the APEC guides Jan Van Noten, Koen Cassiers, Ludo Cami, Dirk Brentjens, Rik Jacobs and Clem Saeys.


APEC can rely on the support and expertise of a vast number of port professionals for the execution of the programs (both in Belgium and abroad).
