Date: 19.11.2008

Bulgarian and Italian transport officials met Monday in the Italian port of Brindisi in order to reactivate the project for the Pan-European Transport Corridor No. 8.

The Bulgarian delegation included the Deputy Transport Minister Daniela Nikiforova, the CEO of the Port of Varna Danail Papazov, the CEO of the Port of Burgas Argir Boyadzhiev, the CEO of the Port Infrastructure State Agency Petar Seferov, the CEO of the Burgas Duty Free Zone Vasiliy Skripka, and the Mayor of the Danube town of Oryahovo Georgi Penkov.

The visit had been initiated by the local authorities in Brindizi, and the local chamber of commerce.

The Italian delegation included the Governor of the Brindisi Province Michele Erico, the Director of the Port of Brindisi Guisepe Guirgola, and the Deputy Mayor of Brindisi Paolo Chiantera.

Bulgaria's Deputy Transport Minister confirmed the importance of the Corridor No. 8 for the country, and informed the Italian officials about the recent talks that the Bulgarian government had had with Macedonian and Albanian representatives on the development of the project.

The Governor of the Brindisi province stressed the local authorities in the city supported exquisitely the establishing of the transport corridor, which is supposed to connect the Bulgarian Black Sea ports of Varna and Burgas to Brindizi through Macedonia and the Albanian port of Durres.

The Italian side also emphasized that Bulgaria, together with Turkey, Egypt, and China, was of primary interest for the Italian port operators, and that it would like to see Transport Corridor No. 8 develop into a commercial route, which was competitive to the Pan-European corridors.
