DCT Gdansk, the leading Polish container terminal played host to one of the most important politicians in Poland, when on September 7, 2011, DCT was visited by Cezary Grabarczyk, Minister of Infrastructure in Donald Tusk’s government. The Minister of Infrastructure met with DCT Gdansk's CEO and a representative of Macquarie, the largest private infrastructure investor in the world, to discuss infrastructure priorities in Poland and the opportunities presented by the development of a major hub port in Gdansk for the Polish economy.
Cezary Grabarczyk and Boris Wenzel, DCT's CEO, spoke about the importance of Polish infrastructure development as a trigger for the fast increase of the volume handled in Polish container terminals and to attract Polish volumes currently handled via foreign ports.
“The strategy of the government is aligned with the strategy of DCT Gdansk presented by Mr. Boris Wenzel” said Cezary Grabarczyk.
“DCT is organising an information campaign following the meeting with Donald Tusk, Prime Minister of Poland, who visited our terminal 13th May 2011” said Boris Wenzel. “We started with general issues that influence Polish container industry and we have received confirmation that the Polish government is keen to implement solutions that will support the development of container terminals. Now it is time to discuss details and Mr. Cezary Grabarczyk’s visit is a chance to speak about infrastructure problems which are urgent not only for our business but for the whole region as well” added Boris Wenzel.
