Bright Future for Qeshm Island
The Qeshm Island will be turned into a main marine port in the region, according to the Managing Director of Qeshm Free Zone, Hamid Reza Momeni.
Speaking about the development of marine activities in the Kaveh and Suza ports, Momeni said that three jetties with a docking capacity of 100 thousand tons ships are currently active at Kaveh, adding that with the implementation of the development plan four new jetties will increase the capacity of the port to 2 million containers per year.
He also added that the southern coastline of the City of Suza, with such capacities as a draft of 48 meters, can become one of the largest strategic ports of the world, IRNA informs.
Some of the privileges such as access of Qeshm to international and Central Asia markets are among components that are considered to be highly outstanding and important in this field, he concluded.
