Greek ports privatisation moves ahead

Greek ports privatisation moves ahead
Sam Chambers July 15, 2022

Greece’s ongoing port privatisation plans have turned to Alexandroupolis in the far northeast of the country near Bulgaria and Turkey.

A July 29 deadline has been set for bids to take over the port while investors are also being sought for the northwestern port of Igoumenitsa for which an August 5 deadline has been given.

Greece’s top two ports – Piraeus and Thessaloniki – were the first to be privatised, with Piraeus now controlled by China’s Cosco and Thessaloniki run by Belterra Investments.
