By November 12, shipping companies are expected to submit their final proposals on the terms of the new tender for the Greek-Cyprus ferry connection.
The Ministry of Shipping of Cyprus has long entered a period of consultation and contacts with many operators, where opinions were submitted and therefore many things change compared to last year’s tender. Further contacts have been made with the European Commission’s Central Competition Directorate to improve conditions, always on the basis of EU rules.
The aim is to launch a tender that will reflect as much as possible and within the allowed framework the views of the interested parties, so that this time the efforts will have positive results.
Until today, there has been a contact with more than 15 companies that meet the relevant criteria in the European market and have the ships to perform the ferry service. The tender document is open to everyone on the public tenders’ page of the Republic of Cyprus.
