Revised European Port Infrastructure and Security Trade Mission to Germany, Belgium and Italy, May 4–8, 2009 AGENCY: International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce. ACTION: Notice. Mission Statement Revised European Port Infrastructure and Security Trade Mission to Germany, Belgium and Italy, May 4–8, 2009. Mission Description The United States Department of Commerce’s International Trade PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 10553 Administration, U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service, is organizing a Trade Mission to Germany, Belgium and Italy, May 4–8, 2009. This event is intended to tap immediate opportunities in port infrastructure, and security and logistics in Hamburg, Germany; Antwerp, Belgium; and Genoa, Italy. Because these ports are key gateways to the Western European market, companies from countries beyond Germany, Belgium, and Italy will be informed about the mission and encouraged to meet with the U.S. participants. The program will focus on several major areas, including, but not limited to, the following: (1) Port safety and security, including container tagging, chemical and radiation detection equipment, electronic container seals, tracking equipment, virtual simulation products and other high-technology security items, and training (such as first responder); (2) Port logistics and infrastructure, including supply chain, communications, crisis management, risk management products, disaster control shore-based electricity, inland connections, terminal railroad infrastructure, pipelines and other solutions for liquid bulk and petrochemical products; (3) Port environment, including reduced emissions, clean engine developments and GreenPorts Certification; and (4) European maritime policies. The trade mission will expose participating companies to procurement opportunities in maritime ports and showcase U.S. technology, which is highly regarded and maintains a competitive edge in Europe. Commercial Setting As in other markets, Europe places a strong emphasis on homeland security, transportation, environmental safety and critical infrastructure development. The need for information exchange and security concerning the maritime industry continues to create opportunities in the maritime sector in Europe. Approximately 90 percent of the transport of goods to and from the European Union is by sea. The European Union has adopted rules regarding maritime safety and security to ensure quality shipping that respects the environment and guarantees an optimal level of protection. The current European maritime transport policy calls for safety and security measures that will allow the European maritime industry to continue making the most of its already prominent role to maximize E:\FR\FM\11MRN1.SGM 11MRN1 10554 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 46 / Wednesday, March 11, 2009 / Notices its competitive position. The major focus is on environmental impact, safety, unification and simplification of procedures. This scenario will provide excellent opportunities for U.S. companies operating in a variety of areas. End-users consider the U.S. security equipment industry to be a leader in the global marketplace. U.S. producers will continue to have a competitive advantage because of their know-how and technological edge. Solutions to be considered will include, among many other items, handheld scanners, pagers, portal monitors, radiation identification devices, cargo and baggage screening equipment, non-intrusive inspection technology, access control and identification systems, video surveillance equipment and communication software for data integration. In European ports, a strong demand is developing for emissions-reducing technologies. This demand is triggered mainly by European Union legislation pushing for important reductions in gaseous emissions, especially greenhouse gases, CO, NOX and SOx. The underlying political drivers are the EU’s commitment to the Kyoto Protocol and its Clean Air For Europe (CAFE) program. As EU Member states have Sunday, May 3, through Tuesday, May 5, 2009. Tuesday, May 5, through Thursday, May 7.

Key commercial leads will include any and all technologies that lead to higher energy efficiency of both onshore (port facilities and infrastructure) and offshore (vessels) equipment. Examples are shore-based electricity networks (‘‘cold ironing’’), exhaust filters for diesel engines and power plants, and low-sulfur fuels. As the legislative process is ongoing, companies interested in this area could benefit from developing relations with port authorities and other semi-public stakeholders as direct sources of information in the future. Mission Goals The trade mission’s goal is to introduce U.S. exporters of port-related equipment, systems, and services to potential public and private end-users and partners, including potential agents, distributors, and licensees, with the aim of creating business partnerships that will contribute to increasing U.S. exports to European markets. Mission Scenario The mission will include meetings with individuals from both the public sector (e.g., port authorities and customs officials) and private business (e.g., shipping agents, marine terminal operators, and local security systems companies). In each country, participants will receive a briefing that will include market intelligence, as well as an overview of the country’s economic and political environment. A networking reception is planned at each stop. The mission will also include a brief tour of the ports of Hamburg, Antwerp and Genoa, briefings by port authorities on planned projects and expected infrastructure and security needs, and one-on-one business meetings between U.S. participants and potential end-users and partners. Follow-on business meetings in other countries in the region can be set up before or after the trade mission for an additional price, depending on participants’ wishes. Proposed Timetable The proposed schedule allows for about a day and a half in each port area. Efforts will be made to accommodate participating companies with particular interests that require individual schedules within one stop. Mission begins in Hamburg, Germany. Welcome briefing.

Mission Statement

    Revised European Port Infrastructure and Security Trade Mission to 
Germany, Belgium and Italy, May 4-8, 2009.

Mission Description

    The United States Department of Commerce's International Trade 
Administration, U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service, is organizing a 
Trade Mission to Germany, Belgium and Italy, May 4-8, 2009. This event 
is intended to tap immediate opportunities in port infrastructure, and 
security and logistics in Hamburg, Germany; Antwerp, Belgium; and 
Genoa, Italy. Because these ports are key gateways to the Western 
European market, companies from countries beyond Germany, Belgium, and 
Italy will be informed about the mission and encouraged to meet with 
the U.S. participants.
    The program will focus on several major areas, including, but not 
limited to, the following:
    (1) Port safety and security, including container tagging, chemical 
and radiation detection equipment, electronic container seals, tracking 
equipment, virtual simulation products and other high-technology
