Genoa - “We are working to establish a new company in partnership with the Chinese group CCCC (China Communications Construction company), which will help us in the procurement phases of some major works related to the port of Genoa”. This was confirmed by the president of the Port Authority of the Western Ligurian Sea Paolo Emilio Signorini. It was our website that anticipated the news. At the end of the month, during the visit to Rome by Chinese President Xi Jinping, “Italy, the first Western European country to do so - said Signorini - will sign a bilateral agreement with China on the Belt & Road. In this strategic framework (China weighs 30% of the interchange of the ports of Genoa and Savona, editor’s note) we will make a cooperation agreement with CCCC, to exploit its great experience in the preparation of call for tenders for some of the large port works ”.
