A spokesman for Tallinna Sadam (Port of Tallinn, which is a very beautiful place as ports go), Sven Ratassepp, said China’s interest in an expanding container terminal at Estonia’s main merchant port of Muuga has not waned.
The president of the Ningbo group, and the vice president and European representatives of an ocean container shipping company, were present in a meeting with Chinese entrepreneurs.
Sven Ratassepp said, "The talks were productive, but all negotiations do not end with a contract. We shall continue cooperation towards the common goal."
Ratassepp added, however, that the state-owned port company will continue talks with other potential partners in developing the container terminal.
CargoNews Asia reports Tallinna Sadam has 27 hectares of additional terminal territory together with 400 meters of wharves under construction in the eastern part of the port of Muuga.
