The Consul General of the Republic of Cyprus, Konstantinos Polykarpou, visited ThPA S.A. today. During the visit, he was informed by the Executive Chairman of the BoD & Managing Director of ThPA S.A., Thanos Liagkos, on the recent developments at the Port and the progress of the implementation of the Company’s Investment Plan. At the same time, through the impressive 3D interactive model, Mr. Polykarpou was guided through the Port and the future expansion of Pier 6, which upgrades the position of the Port of Thessaloniki in the global port industry and has a strong and broad socio-economic footprint.
Mr. Liagkos then referred to the direct access of the Port of Thessaloniki to the Balkan markets with direct rail connections from Thessaloniki to Bulgaria (Sofia) and Serbia (Nis), noting that ThPA S.A. aspires to be the multi-gateway intermodal network and logistics solutions provider for the Balkans and the broader Southeast, Central and Eastern European region. Moreover, given that Greece is already connected to Cyprus, including through the Port of Thessaloniki, with regular commercial routes, the mutually beneficial prospects for enhancing the connectivity of the two countries but also the wider Balkan and European region at the cruise level and the further development of freight flows were discussed at length.
