Greek ports will remain under state control, with the state maintaining a majority 51 pct equity stake, according to George Anomeritis, president of the Greek Ports Association and chairman of the Piraeus Port Authority.

Speaking in Thessaloniki, Anomeritis said announcements will be made in December over a new, single port system, which will include all Greek ports, noting that related studies have been completed.

He declined, however, to offer more details over the pro-gramme, and said that formal announcements will be made by Maritime Affairs Minister Yiannis Diamantidis this month.

Anomeritis said an international tender to build a sixth pier at the Thessaloniki Port will be launched this month.

The association he heads up brings together 12 national ports - all of whom operate as S.A.s: Piraeus, Thessaloniki, Alexandroupolis, Kavala, Volos, Igoumenitsa, Corfu, Patras, Lavrio, Rafina, Elefsina and Irakleio.
