The Greek Parliament plenary ratified the amendment to the 2018 concession agreement on the use and management of certain areas and assets at the Thessaloniki Port, on Thursday, ANA reports.
Shipping & Island Policy Minister Yiannis Plakiotakis, whose ministry submitted the bill, said that Greece’s privatization agency the Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund (HRADF) had completed evaluations of the 10 peripheral ports of Greece and large investors had expressed great interest in them, particularly for Alexandroupolis, Kavala, and Iraklio, besides that of Igoumenitsa.
Opposition parties expressed their objections that the agreement did not include fines if the concessionaires failed to complete the project on schedule, and accused the government of not having the public interests in mind.
