Istanbul, Turkey (PortSEurope) May 19, 2020 – Managers of the leading Black Sea ports have held a virtual “meeting” to discuss the impact of the Covid-19 coronavirus crisis and future steps to be taken. After the Coronavirus epidemic of the Black Sea, especially when it is spoken among the favorite addresses of the Cruise sector, the port administrators and representatives in the countries bordering the
Black Sea shared their thoughts at their meeting with video conferences.  Port managers from Hopaport and Trabzon in Turkey, joined in with representatives from Varna, Burgas, Odessa, Constanta and Sochi. Meriç Burçin Özer, General Manager of Park Denizcilik Ve Hopa Liman İşletmeleri A.Ş. (Hopaport), said that ports around the Black Sea should start a policy of cooperation and coordination. He added that he would like to see more exchanges of information, visits and sharing experiences. The cruise sector has been “taken offline” by the pandemic, and he added that, regarding this sector, ports should come together to seek solutions. He added that the cruise sector has a huge potential when looking at the world in general, and that the formation of a new location with the historical and touristic places of the Black Sea within this potential is reinforced by this proposed union.  The next meeting will be held in July, to be determined by the secretariat.  Copyright (C) PortSEurope.
