Brussels, 3 December 2019
Tuesday the 3rd of December, FEPORT Secretariat attended the EU Forum for the Protection of Public Spaces, in short known as the EU Operators Forum. This forum focuses on the protection of public spaces against terrorist threats. This forum’s participants consist of Member States’ representatives, associations involved in the operation of public spaces (e.g. public transport, shopping malls, concerts, etc.) and private security actors.
The term “public spaces” mostly refers to places where large groups of people gather, which means that also cruise terminals can be possibly implicated. FEPORT therefore attends the meetings of this forum to be aware of security measures potentially affecting the cruise industry.
