“Serbia is the regional centre and an indispensable part of the transport network of South-Eastern Europe, and any form of cooperation in this area is of great interest to us. We want to cooperate with the port of Thessaloniki so that our companies can make the most of this mode of transport,” she said.
According to the government website, Teofanis informed the Deputy Prime Minister and his staff about the development plans of the port of Thessaloniki, as well as about the willingness to invest in new terminals in Serbia and the region.
“For us, cooperation with Serbia is not only an economic issue, but also a matter of tradition. With the new investments we want to provide access to the port of Thessaloniki for the major carriers in order to be a regional transport center,” he said. “In addition, he added, we want to invest in Serbia in so-called dry ports, i.e. container terminals that would become like the ports of Thessaloniki in the region.
During the meeting, it was agreed to form as soon as possible a special group for cooperation between the Ministry and the Greek-Serbian Chamber of Commerce, which will define concrete plans and projects for joint cooperation.
