All official parties from the Province of Rethymnon said a clear NO ... NO . and again NO to OLH's proposal for a container port in the South of Rethymnon close to Agia Galini.
Many officials and politicians are now questioning and keep wandering why is this issue coming back every so often.
OLH has not found any support by anyone so far and it seems that the container port project file along with its video clip will end up finally in a cabinet somewhere to collect dust.
An article I read today in the http://www.express.g...8022596692.php3
says that the Cosco/Greek Government deal for the port of Pireaus is very close and that investment interest is now also focusing around the ports of Thessaloniki, Alexandroupolis, Kavala and Igoumenitsa.
Αξίζει να υπενθυμιστεί ότι υφίσταται καταγεγραμμένο επενδυτικό ενδιαφέρον για τα εμπορικά τμήματα των λιμένων της Αλεξανδρούπολης, της Καβάλας αλλά και της Ηγουμενίτσας, ενώ έντονο είναι και το ενδιαφέρον για επενδύσεις στα επιβατικά τμήματα των λιμένων Πειραιά, Βόλου, Θεσσαλονίκης και Κατάκολου από τον τομέα των κρουαζιερόπλοιων.

Thought, since Greek is a more ancient language than Latin, that φάρσα came first and the Latin farsa later.
Thanks Ton, never too old to learn.

According to the Article below the Container port issue in Agia Galini is closing. The YEN has no planning of building a container port in this area especially without the agreement of the local community. It appears that Olga Kefalogianni and the the officials of the Lampis/Agia Galini municipality managed to clear this issue with the YEN Minister paving the way for touristic rather than industrial investments in this area of South Crete.

I copied your good news to the Galini forum. In case they were not informed yet.

The official Greek Government representative of the YEN G. Vlachos visited Crete officials last week and made clear to all that the Greek Commercial Shipping Ministry has no more planning in persuing the construction of a container port in south Crete around the area of Timpaki. Also there is no planning or public money envisaged for the construction of a commercial touristic or Marina port in the same area. He clearly stated that the reasons to give up the planning of this port were the negative reaction the ministry has received the last few years from the local communities. The latest news comes as a blow to all who were instigating this project in South Crete and as a victory to all environmental groups who were against the container port.
