Today, on June 26, in Nikolaevsk sea trade port took place solemn commissioning of a complex on production and processing of chips.
More than 3 million dollars were invested in this project by Italians and it was included in the program of development of port till 2015.
The deputy minister of transport and communication of Ukraine, the head of Public administration of sea and river transport Mikhail Chubay, the extraordinary and authorized ambassador of the Republic Italy in Ukraine Pietro Giovanni Donnici, the head of department of legal support and control of the State Committee of forestry of Ukraine participated in a festive event Perth Shareyko, the chief of NMTP Vasily Kapatsina, the Deputy minister of infrastructure and transport of Italy Giiacino Bartolomeo, representatives influential business - circles of Italy (nicknamed journalists "the Sicilian mafia"). Neither the Nikolaev mayor, nor the governor of the Nikolaev area, the chairman of the Nikolaev regional council in NMTP it wasn't noticed. Possibly, at them more serious actions were appointed to this time.
If the Nikolaev mayor still can be understood - he went to Kiev to a meeting with the Prime minister - the minister of Ukraine Yu. Tymoshenko to resolve an issue on "Nikolayevelektrotrans", here where and than the governor and the chairman of a regional council are occupied - it isn't known.
Instead of V. Chaika to NMTP there arrived his deputy of A. Zhenzherukh who thanked all who is involved in implementation of this project.
As Mikhail Chubay reported in the performance, that wood which was considered as waste earlier and was burned - will be processed now in Nikolaev, to fill up the city and state budget, new workplaces will be involved. The new terminal can process 3 million tons of a chip a year.
Why Italy so grasped Nikolaev? Benefit of NMTP is clear - the potential, capacities, competitiveness, workplaces, profit, export … And what reason of Italy to invest money in hitherto waste material - a chip?
The Italian ambassador Pietro Donnici reported that last year Italy enclosed three billion dollars to Ukraine, and, despite crisis, continues to invest millions in Ukraine and in Nikolaev as in Ukraine there is a high agro-industrial potential, forest potential, and Nikolaev has the best arrangement of trade ways in comparison with other ports. Italy in Ukraine doesn't see serious risks and claims that others it isn't better - crisis struck on all. And if didn't find in Nikolaev good investment climate - money wouldn't enclose, and I added: "World big, but small".
Cards of an extraordinary ambassador were shown up to the end by the chief of the Nikolaev MTP Vasily Kapatsina, having told that Italy annually imports a chip from Canada and Brazil of 5-6 million tons, Ukraine - is much closer. Possibility of NMTP to accept vessels like "Panomaks" who in full to freight with spill sit 10 m, and, having 5 branches of the railway transit direction, I became, according to Italy, the best object for investment.
The ambassador promised to return in the spring, and hopes that primavera will come and in NMTP - investors want to see enterprise blossoming, increase in its power, potential, the territorial size and increase in quantity of workplaces.
