Greece plans to cancel Alexandroupoli port tender

Greece is expected to cancel a tender for the sale of a majority stake in its northern port of Alexandroupoli as its strategic location coupled with geopolitical developments caused by the war in Ukraine are forcing the government to reconsider the terms of the tender.

The port functions as a supply base for NATO forces throughout Eastern Europe and is part of a five-year term framework for the presence of the US Armed Forces in Greece signed in May 2022.

The announcements from Greece’s privatization agency TAIPED are expected toward the end of the week.

Bulgaria expressed plans to take part in privatization of Greece’s harbors in Alexandroupolis and Kavala previously. Aim of Bulgaria was to receive best access to critical energy infrastructure there.
