A new sea link between Greece’s Lavrio and Turkey’s Cesme ports will go into operation on June 2, boosting trade by avoiding long overland travel for large trucks while serving tourists as well.

Shipping agents of the two countries will run the line through Istanbul-based Aegean Sea Ways, overseen by chairman Bulent Ipek. Its representative in Greece is Stefmar Ltd., headed by Stefanos Karakanis.
