Cartagena, 1 October 2019 - The vice-president of the Port Authority, Pedro Pablo Hernández, chaired the meeting of the Port's Board of Directors.
The meeting has approved an additional call of €30,000 for non-profit associations based in the region after the authorisation to increase the amount from State Ports. On 1 March 2019, it approved the "Regulatory bases for APC collaborations and subsidies in the area of Corporate Social Responsibility" amounting to €70,000. This means that €100,000 will be allocated to various cultural, social and sporting projects.
