Chabahar to Host Conference of Marine Organizations

The 25th Forum of Iran’s Marine Organizations is scheduled for Jan. 30-31 in the southeastern port city of Chabahar, according to Ali Akbar Marzban, an official with the Ports and Maritime Organization of Iran.
According to Marzban, the meeting will focus on marine transport, port logistics, the role of the private sector in expanding maritime trade, marine environmental issues and investment opportunities in Chabahar’s Shehid Beheshti Port, IRNA reported.
More than 50 organizations are expected to take part.
The first phase of Chabahar’s Shahid Beheshti Port was inaugurated by President Hassan Rouhani last month in the presence of dignitaries from 17 countries.
Chabahar is Iran’s only oceanic port town and consists of two separate ports --  Shahid Kalantari and Shahid Beheshti. The opening of the first phase of Shahid Beheshti Port (out of five phases defined for the project), which has tripled its capacity to 8.5 million tons (equal to that of all the northern ports of the country), will allow the docking of super-large container ships (between 100,000 DWT and 120,000 DWT) and increase India’s connectivity with Afghanistan.
