    AMNA--Development, Competitiveness & Shipping Minister Mihalis Chryssohoidis on Wednesday unveiled an ambitious investment plan aimed to boost sea cruise and the port of Piraeus by creating new jobs in the port.

    “We will disengage funds from 'dead' projects and earmark them for new projects, which will begin shortly,” Chryssohoidis said, adding that the projects will boost the cruise sector at the port of Piraeus.

    The minister said the Piraeus Port Authority reported revenues totaling 360 million euros from sea cruises and noted that the ministry’s aim is to double this figure in the coming years.amna

    George Anomeritis, chairman of Piraeus Port Authority, said the port expected 800 cruise ships to arrive at the port next year.
