Draft Law Granting Sub-Concession Rights to Greek Ports Will Go to a Vote Shortly, Kouvelis Says

Α draft law that will open the way for 10 large Greek ports to be given sub-concession rights for certain activities is expected to arrive at the plenary of the Greek parliament for voting with the next few days, Minister of Shipping and Island Policy Fotis Kouvelis said on Wednesday, speaking a meeting of the National Coordination Committee for Cruising Affairs. According to the new law, Kouvelis said, the 10 ports of which the Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund (TAIPED) is the majority shareholder will be given the right to exercise activities that will increase their capacity for receiving cruise ships (ex., building infrastructure and marinas), through the launch of an international tender which will be run according to national and EU law. Furthermore, Kouvelis stressed the importance of speeding up the construction of water airports, which, he said, will give a great boost to the cruising sector.
