(ANSA) - INGOLSTADT (GERMANY) - Thanks to the transalpine oil pipeline ''Trieste has become Italy's most important port'' and ''Bavaria has recorded a strong acceleration in its industrial development'', thus ''contributing to European growth'', said the president of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region, Debora Serracchiani, attending in Ingolstadt (Germany) today the 50th anniversary ceremony of the 753km oil pipeline between the port of Trieste and Bavaria. According to Serracchiani, this pipeline is ''an emblematic case of infrastructure capable of making an impact which is not only local, but also global. Italy and Germany, together, have become successful countries and have both benefited from the ability to develop innovative and advanced logistics solutions''.

Serracchiani invited Bavaria to ''use even more the port of Trieste, not only for energy supplies but also for trade''.

''Trieste has a magnificent harbour, a successful and huge infrastructure that provides Bavaria with the fastest access to the sea'', said Bavaria's President Horst Seehofer, highlighting Bavarian development plans and good opportunities for further collaboration with Trieste and Friuli Venezia Giulia.
