The port of Durres will be transformed into the largest marina in the Mediterranean. With 2 billion euros invested by Emaar Group, it will be the largest foreign investment in Albania.
On Wednesday, Prime Minister Edi Rama published the completed model of the urban studio of Emaar Group in Dubai, of the transformation of the port of Durrës.
"Good morning and with the model completed of the urban studio of Emaar Group in Dubai, which is now located in the Port of Durres, where one of the largest and most beautiful tourist ports in the Mediterranean will soon be built, I wish you a good day ", said Prime Minister Rama.
In November last year, the Albanian government agreed on an agreement with the United Arab Emirates for the transformation of the port area of the Port of Durres, an investment which is expected to totally transform the appearance and capacity of this port, with a direct impact on the local economy and national.
The planned tourist marina is expected to have twice the space and capacity, compared to the most prestigious marina in the Mediterranean so far, which is that of Porto Montenegro.
The new port is expected to have improved infrastructure for anchoring vessels, which will help further develop tourism in the country.
Emaar Company, in addition to the transformation of the port space, aims at a number of transformative investments, including the reconstruction of the part of the sea shore, where entertainment facilities, shopping centers, apartments and 5-star hotel constructions will be built.
