NETHERLANDS-SEA-TRANSPORT

Dutch Minister of Infrastructure and Environment Melanie Schultz van Haegen waves a flag during the official opening of Maasvlakte 2 in the port of Rotterdam, on May 22, 2013. Europe's busiest port of Rotterdam opened a multi-billion euro extension on Wednesday, with wider and deeper basins to accomodate the world's biggest freight ships. The Maasvlakte 2 project is the largest feat of Dutch maritime engineering in decades, and will itself take another 20 years to reach capacity as world sea trade grows relentlessly and in spite of the economic crisis.
