Officials in Greece have said it is too early to comment on specifics, but a sale is almost inevitable. Reuters added that COSCO spokeswoman declined to comment on prospective bids for other Greek assets. She said the firm believed buying Piraeus would improve the port's competitiveness and efficiency, but declined to elaborate on detailed plans.
