Monday, June 03, 2013

Greek President Karolos saw successful cooperation with COSCO in the Port of Piraeus as a pointer towards further bilateral collaboration.

The Greek president voiced his thoughts during a visit to the Chinese company's Piraeus Container Terminal (PCT) in Athens reports China Daily.

Papoulias expressed confidence that with COSCO's success and following Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras' official visit to China two weeks ago, more Chinese companies will come to invest in Greece.

Citing statements to Greek news agency AMNA, China Daily reports that Greek Shipping Minister Costis Moussouroulis who accompanied the president on the visit, thought that the company's new investment projects verified the strategic position the port of Piraeus holds in the global sea transport system.

PCT launched operations at Pier II at Piraeus port in 2009 with a plan to turn it into the leading container terminal in Greece and the Mediterranean region.
