Pledge of development of sea branch is integration of sea trade ports by a way of association of smaller Ukrainian ports with large. Such opinion was expressed by the Minister of Transport and communications of Ukraine Iosif Vinsky, reports a press - Mintranssvyaz service.
According to the message, in 2008 in many seaports there was a situation when the port couldn't accept and process a possible stream of freight. For this reason freght traffics were reoriented on the foreign enterprises. "Only ports with developed capacities, infrastructure, high opportunities for self-development and growth can effectively conduct the activity and compete in the international market", - the minister noted.
According to him, the large enterprises have opportunity to amortize means and at the expense of it to develop the capacities independently. Process of integration of ports was already realized in accession of Genichesky port to Berdyansk, Dnepro - Buzhsky to the Nikolaev port. "I consider that it is better to have ten modern and effective ports, than twenty, but such which fall" into decay, - Vinsky emphasized.
We will remind, for today in Ukraine is 18 sea trade ports.
