The Port Equipment Manufacturers Association (PEMA) has appointed a new Head of Administration, Mr. Petar Karaivanov, who joined the Association on Monday October 15. Petar will continue to develop the growing number of ways the Association acts as a forum for the global ports and terminals sector.
