Constanta, Romania (PortSEurope) December 20, 2017 – On December 13, 2017, representatives of Anaklia port in Georgia, Levan Akhvlediani, CEO, and Salome Kelenjeridze, Commercial Marketing Director, visited Constanta harbour and held business meetings with port companies.
The Georgian delegation and the management of Compania Naţională Administraţia Porturilor Maritime (CNPM) Constanţa S. A, (National Company Maritime Ports Administration SA Constanta) held discussions on the development of the new port of Anaklia as a potential partner for Constanta port, considering the conclusion of a cooperation protocol between the two ports.
Emphasis was placed on the importance of traffic development between Constanta Port and Georgian ports, by revitalizing direct connections between Romania and Georgia.
CNPM headquarters also organized business meetings with important companies working in Constanta port for future collaborations. The event was also attended by Constanta Port Business Association representatives.
The visit of the two Georgian delegates is a follow-up to the steps taken by CNPM Constanta’s leadership at Tbilisi Belt & Road Forum from 27-29 November 2017 in Georgia.
Romania and Georgia are a bridge between Europe and Asia via the Black Sea. In this sense, the exploration of the entire cooperation potential between Constanta Port and the Georgian ports is one of the priorities of CNPM, which determined the new strategy of promoting Constanta Port.
Anaklia Development Consortium is the signatory of the investment agreement with the Georgian government, through which it has been granted the right to develop, build, operate and operate the Anaklia Port. Anaklia Development Consortium is a joint venture formed by TBC Holding (Georgia) and Conti International (USA).
The new Anaklia port, a major regional project, will have a strategic positioning to attract additional cargo traffic to the Caucasus and Central Asia region, contributing to the restoration of the old Silk Road. Taking into account the depths of up to 16 metres it will have, Anaklia Harbour will place Georgia on the direct route of port container ships.
Taking into account the technical, positioning and potential features, the Anaklia and Constanta ports have the prerequisites to meet all the conditions for being part of the One Belt, One Road initiative.
Constanta Port continues the process of developing bilateral relations aimed at building a complex network of freight exchanges, proposing to conclude solid partnerships with major ports in Europe, the Caucasus and the Middle East, relying on its strategic position on the Black Sea and connection with Danube as a major advantage in the context of regional and global trade development.
