MNA – Iran’s Roads and Urban Development Minister Mohammad Eslami inaugurated the 50,000-ton container dock on Negin Island in the southern province of Bushehr on Sunday.
Implementation of the project, including a 300-meter dock, was commenced about four years ago.
Eslami was in Bushehr province to accompany Iranian President Hassan Rouhani who was there to inaugurate a number of projects.
Negin Island is a small sedimentary piece of land near Bushehr city. Authorities are planning to turn the island into a maritime hub through port construction. Linking Negin Island to Bushehr Port is expected to significantly increase commercial activities in the region.
