Kenyan and Greek ports set to sign twinning agreements

The Kenyan ports of Mombasa and Lamu will sign twinning agreements with their Greek counterpart ports of Piraeus and Alexandroupolis that will see the ports establish ties of cooperation in shipping and bulk cargo haulage.

Foreign Affairs CAS Ababu-Terrah Namwamba, said this when he visited Piraeus port in Athens, Greece where he held talks with the port’s top management led by Vice Presidents of Piraeus Port Authority Angelos Karakostas and Captain Weng Lin.

The twinning agreements will ease the way for Kenyan as well as East and Central African products like flowers, fruits and vegetables to use Greece as a launchpad to access the Balkan and southern European markets through, among others, the lucrative historical Silk Road belt.

Namwamna stressed the importance of the twinning agreements saying it will cut distance and costs and pave the way to collaborate in “key issues” such as technology sharing, maritime security and weather patterns monitoring.
