The Economic Interest Grouping (EIG) appeared to be the most appropriate form of structure for the situation: the operating procedures of this type of structure best meet the needs for responsiveness, flexibility and coordination required by the planned projects.
Composed of the three managing directors of the ports of Paris Seine Normandie, the Board of Directors, which is responsible for the management of the EIG, meets regularly and has the task of validating decisions such as study topics and strategic decisions of all kinds. It is the referent of the Conseil de coordination interportuaire de la Seine (CCIS – Seine Inter-port Coordination Council) and provides it with activity and achievement monitoring. The presidency of the EIG is rotating, for a period of 1 year, alternately held by each general manager.
The President's main function is to ensure the functioning of the EIG and the implementation and progress of projects. He represents the Board of Directors in institutional relations, and is in regular contact with the General Commission for the Development of the Seine Valley. Through its role as facilitator, the EIG's mission is to profoundly renew relations with the various HAROPA stakeholders by inviting them to participate in strategic discussions as part of a consultative body.
