will now be evaluated by the Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund (HRADF). I hope that we can move forward very soon so that the port of Alexandroupolis really becomes what we all envision: a pole of development, not only for the city of Alexandroupolis, for the whole of Thrace. I think it is an investment that will make Alexandroupolis an economic and geopolitical center. So, we’re very happy with the fact that we had four as it seems very reliable offers. And, of course, we are now looking forward to the completion of the next steps of the competition “.
