CHINESE technology and communication solutions giant Huawei has inaugurated a pilot distribution centre in the Greek Port of Piraeus, Xinhua reports.

The official opening of the distribution centre was held at the premises of Cosco’s subsidiary Piraeus Container Terminal (PCT).

From now on, Huawei, a leading global provider of technology and communications, serving a third of the world’s population in 140 countries, will be distributing its products in Europe through Greece.

“The Huawei distribution centre strengthens Piraeus and Greece’s position on the global transportation map,” said Greek Development and Competitiveness Minister Kostis Hatzidakis.

The investment is regarded as a “confidence vote in Greece by a robust multinational company,” Mr Hatzidakis said.

Shipping Minister Miltiadis Varvitsiotis said that the Greek government wants Pireaus to become the number one port and logistics centre in the Mediterranean.

“Until now our partnership with Cosco has been an example of how serious partners can make a big dreams come true. We are fully committed to exploiting and increasing our cooperation,” he said.

Mr Varvitsiotis said Greece is changing and the ports of Greece are becoming the new gates of European continent and EU market.
