By bne IntelliNews July 7, 2010
The state antitrust commission will assess the intentions of the transport ministry and the local Bulgarian River Shipping Company (BRS) to sign a concession agreement for part of the Danube River port in the Bulgarian north-western city of Vidin, the regulator said on its website. The concentration is expected to affect the port market on the Danube River. All interested parties are invited to send opinions in a week. BRS is 75% owned by the country's largest holding company Chimimport. It is Bulgaria's main water transportation company along the Danube with 90% of the company's activities focused on transporting goods from Russia and Ukraine.
