Philip Holliday, Chief Executive Officer and Director, Port Authority of New South Wales, writes:
“From the rapid response to COVID-19 to a new strategic vision set to improve levels of service for shipping, it’s been a year of significant change for the ports of New South Wales.
“If one word could sum up 2020, for me it’s ‘resilience’. Australia has faced two unprecedented crises this year, first the devastating bushfires, then the ongoing impacts of COVID-19, and has stood firm in the face of adversity.
“This resilience, shown by so many across the country, has also been reflected across Australia’s port sector and in the people working to keep our ports safe, secure and open to the world.
“The past year more than any has served to highlight the immense value of our ports to Australia, the economy and the wellbeing of our society, and our maritime workforce has gone above and beyond to ensure our ports have continued delivering for the nation“.
