Berdyansk Commercial Sea Port is ready to invest $10 million in construction of a grain terminal, and use the experience of the city Gdansk in Poland, the head of the port Nikolai Ilyin declared.
The port is a public company, and it is ready to take investments. The port can provide an opportunity to invest in two berths. But first of all, the authorities have to create the required conditions, because investors are not interested in putting money in construction of new berths, and then transfer them to the public ownership with recovery of expenses.
According to Ilyin, the port accounts have $10 million for construction of the grain terminal in the coming year. The port is waiting for the reaction of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Cabinet of Ministers.
The head of the port said that after reforming of the maritime industry in Poland, the maximum conditions to invest in the ports were created. Polish and foreign stevedoring companies are private structures that operate on separate cargo districts, and state-owned port authorities operate with port lands and waters. In the process of privatization, the legislator provided all requirements to protect the interest of the government and the company’s employees. (APK-Inform/Business World Magazine)
