[Port Elizabeth, South Africa, 15 November 2018] The management team of the Port of PE enthusiastically launched Transnet National Ports Authority’s (TNPA) People’s Port Festival to its customers yesterday, inviting them to come on board as partners to collectively give back to the community.
People is the Centre
“The Port Festival has been centred around people. These people do not only include Transnet employees, the port users and port customers, but also the broader business community, all levels of government and the communities of Nelson Mandela Bay and surrounding areas,” said Rajesh Dana, Port Manager.
Our key objectives include building positive long term and sustainable relationships with all our stakeholders, inspiring young people to see the maritime industry as a lucrative career, promoting the twin ports of Nelson Mandela Bay (the Ports of PE and Ngqura) – showcasing its diversity and its contribution to the local economy - and offering a fun filled weekend of activities for the broader Nelson Mandela Bay community. This festival will provide the perfect platform to market our port city locally, nationally and internationally. It takes place over the weekend of 1 and 2 December.
“This year’s festival promises to be bigger and better than last year, offering an exciting blend of water and landside activities – free edutainment and once-in-a-lifetime experiences for the whole family,” Dana concluded.
