THE Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road are the hot topics in the shipping and business world since Chinese President Xi Jinping unveiled in 2013 the belt and road initiative aimed at promoting prosperity in regions spanning the seas from China to Africa and Europe.

Located in Balochistan in Pakistan, Gwadar Port is at one end of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor which stretches to Kashgar in Xinjiang, China. With roads, railways and pipelines to transport oil and gas, this corridor serves as a bridge for China's planned Maritime Silk Route.

China's planned 21st Century Maritime Silk Road connects ports in China to those in Southeast Asia, South Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Europe, including Venice, the Italian city which served as a trading port on the ancient Silk Road.

Professor Costa, who has been president of the Venice Port Authority since 2008, is also president-in-charge of North Adriatic Ports Association. He served at various times as Minister of Public Works and Urban Areas, Mayor of Venice, and President of the European Parliament Transport Committee.
