Port tariff discount is agreed

The Ministry of Transportation agreed to provide a 5% discount for port service tariff in the next three months, which will be effective starting from 15 February 2009. The approval was given in order to boost the national shipping sector’s growth amidst the global economic crisis, despite state port operators (Pelindo I-IV) have reported that the discount will incur losses on their side. The policy will be reviewed after three months should there is any fuel price cut.
