Fast-track Parliament vote for Piraeus port authority contract


The Greek government is expected to table draft legislation on Wednesday to ratify a contract awarding a majority stake in the Piraeus Port Authority (OLP), and its management, to Cosco via a fast-track procedure.

The draft bill was given an “emergency” status by the government, with a vote by the plenum expected on Thursday.

Athens wants to ratify the contract ahead of Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras visit in a few days to Beijing.

Cosco was the winner in a recent international tender to assume the port of Piraeus, the biggest and busiest in Greece.
