Greece`s passenger shipping industry must be freed up before 2004 – the year when cabotage is due to be abolished, Merchant Marine Minister Christos Papoutsis recently told reporters.
He said that cabotage should be scrapped earlier as 2004, the year Athens will host the Olympic Games, is not the ideal time for such experiments.
Papoutsis said that it would be to Greece`s advantage if it could put a newly freed-up market through a test-run before the summer of 2004. He said the matter would be discussed with the competent bodies.
