Romania’s Complex Delta has completed the biggest dredging in a decade of Izmail port, the removal of 185,000 cubic meters of river silt. “For the first time, a foreign company was attracted to the dredging process in the Ukrainian port on the Danube,” says Rajvis Veckagans, chairman of Ukraine’s Sea Ports Authority. This year, Ukraine’s Danube-Black Sea channel is to be dredged. Visiting Izmail port on Tuesday, President Poroshenko said that 40% of the nation’s trade goes through its ports and that “the domestic transport industry…should take an active part in the development of the transport corridor of the Europe-Asia connection.” Chinese investors have shown interest in buying the Ukrainian Danube Shipping Company if the Izmail-based state company is ever privatized.
