Anti-Trust Commissioner: New Ports Not to Have New Management

Anti-Trust Commissioner Prof. David Gilo announced today (Wednesday) that the oligopolies that provide loading and unloading services at the ports in Haifa and Ashdod will not be running the new ports that the government is planning to build.

The announcement is significant in that it demands that the prospective seaports will be run by outside operators under the new Port reforms, thus encouraging open market competition.
