Minister opens Maasvlakte 2
,,Today we are clearing the way for international shipping and trade. That’s typical of the Netherlands. That’s how we became big. With Maasvlakte 2, the Netherlands is throwing the door wide open to the newest generation of container ships. And we offer space for the latest terminals. The port is growing 20% larger, and the container capacity has doubled.” With these words, Melanie Schultz van Haegen, Minister of Infrastructure and the Environment, today (22 May 2013) opened Maasvlakte 2 to shipping.
