GSH "Danube — the Black Sea" can become the main waterway from the Black Sea to Danube. The corresponding statement during a meeting with the Plenipotentiary Ambassador of France in Ukraine Jacque Faure was made by the first vice-the governor of Odessa region Maxim Stepanov.
According to him, unlike similar Romanian channels the Ukrainian deep-water ship course is capable to work round the clock in both directions at the same time.
Besides, it is much shorter than the Romanian channels that does it more attractive to shipowners and owners of transported freights.
According to Maxim Stepanov, the French businessmen will estimate advantages of the Ukrainian GSH especially as, in view of existence of the connecting channel between the rivers Rhine and Danube, GSH can use and the French vessels.
