Six Leading Baltic States Ports Transported 2.3 Times More Goods than Russian Baltic Ports

Six leading ports of the Baltic States carried a total of 110 million tonnes of goods over the year 2001, which is 2.3 times more than the Russian ports on the Baltic Sea. This was announced on Friday at a conference in St. Petersburg entitled 'Transit and Perspectives of Development for Ports on the Baltic' by Yury Ivanov, Deputy General Director of the Central Scientific Investigation Institute of the Sea Fleet. He said that 'Baltic States ports lost a part of their former transit goods (metals, timber and general goods) over the second half of 2001. However, the losses were more than compensated for by the increase in shipment of other categories of goods, including petroleum and petroleum products, and coal. The Tallin-Muuga port complex is becoming the most successful for the transit of Russian goods around the Baltic States.'

Ivanov went on to say that the increase in the volume of goods transported has been greater in Russia than elsewhere. In Russia growth came to 17%, compared to an average of 7.2% in the Baltic States ports. He also remarked that the turnover of goods in the port of St. Petersburg grew over 2001 by 17.2%, and in the Kaliningrad port, by 19.3%.

Not in vain, practically every day the press offers us the discovery of a new gene, a new hereditary determinant directly involved in the manifestation of diseases or physical characteristics.
