By Karen Robes Meeks

Earlier this month, the Port of Los Angeles strengthened its bond with its coastal European counterparts when it inked a "Friendship Agreement" with the Port Network Authority of the Central Tyrrhenian Sea, the port announced.

The July 10 agreement with the Port Network Authority, which encompasses the ports of Naples, Salerno and Castellammare di Stabia, is designed to nurture business ties and economic cooperation and enhance trade and tourism between the US and Italy, according to the port.

With this agreement, the Los Angeles port now has 17 sister and friendship port agreements with ports all over the world.
