Uniport brings together the port logistics community of Bilbao at its General Assembly
This event was the closing of the 2021 financial year with the approval of the annual accounts by the General Assembly, as a review of the activities of the first half of the year and the calendar planned until the end of the year, and especially as a point of reunion for the sector after the Covid restrictions.
It also allowed us to share with those present the employment dynamism of the Bilbao port community in 2021. Specifically, 60% of our companies (excluding public administrations) made nearly 1,300 new hires in 2021 (according to data provided by Lanbide), which shows the great resilience of the sector in the face of changing situations and the prevailing uncertainty at a global level.
These positive data are complemented by the value of the investments made in the last ten years in the port area, which amount to 1,230 million euros, 70% of which correspond to the private sector.
