A decision has been made that a specialized port, the so-called
Agroport, will be built in Gdańsk, which will be used by agriculture
to reload food and fertilizers - Deputy Minister of Infrastructure
Grzegorz Witkowski told PAP (Polish Press Agency).
- The decision was made to build Agroport in Gdańsk. We also want to interest the port in Świnoujście in this project - Witkowski told PAP.
- Next year, we plan to start work in order to ultimately have two Agroports dedicated to the Ministry of Agriculture - he added.
The deputy minister explained that fruit, vegetables and meat would be exported from these ports, and fertilizers would be imported to Poland.
Witkowski announced that the investor will be a company established by the minister of agriculture called Agroport SA and will invest a total of PLN 500 million in each of these two locations from the state budget.
He reminded that in the port of Świnoujście there is already a large grain warehouse controlled by OT Logistics.
