Directions for the immediate launch of the procedures for the development and exploitation of the country’s ten major regional ports were given by the Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund known as TAIPED to the Ministers of Finance and Shipping, Christos Staikouras and Yiannis Plakiotakis, respectively. Analyzing the evaluation studies completed by TAIPED for each of the ports of Alexandroupolis, Kavala, Volos, Rafina, Elefsina, Lavrion, Igoumenitsa, Corfu, Patras and Heraklion, they expressed the political will of the Greek Government competitions for selecting investors and the best ways to develop each port.
The aim is to make each port a development pole for local communities with multiple benefits in terms of investments, job creation and increased commercial traffic in the region. However, there will also be significant benefits to Greece, both financially, by increasing public revenue and geo-strategic level, by increasing international trade through our country.
As you can see Zakynthos, once again, was absent from the development plans! Maybe the “Lords” of our area should protest to the relevant ministries, should they not?
