Dritsas admits Piraeus port will have to be privatized

The government admitted that it will have to proceed with the privatization process for the Piraeus Port Authority (OLP), as Alternate Shipping Minister Thodoris Dritsas stated on Tuesday that «there are pressing conditions that no one can ignore.”

He added that the entire planning of the administration is determined by the course of the new agreement the country will make with the eurozone, as the rules of the country’s participation in the bloc form a specific framework of moves.

Dritsas went on to say that besides the port authorities of Piraeus and Thessaloniki, there has been no interest expressed in other port authorities.
