Panama pushes for deeper port of Savannah
Georgia needs to do all it can to deepen the Port of Savannah if it wants to remain a competitive.
That is the message Roberto Roy, Panama’s minister for canal affairs and chairman of the Panama Canal Authority, delivered to Georgia Gov. Nathan Deals.
“It is a critical issue for Georgia and for Savannah,” Roy said. “The reason is that the shipping fleet is totally changing. It is not only a matter of the ships being bigger. The key is that the most important variable is the fuel costs.”
