Bulgaria Cuts Port Fees for Cruise Ships to Boost Tourism
Bulgaria has decided to cut tonnage-related port dues for cruise ships in a bid to give a boost to its tourism industry amidst increased competition from neighbouring countries. Cruise ships will have to pay a 14% lower tonnage fee when they call at Bulgaria’s Black Sea and Danube ports under amendments to the list of fees collected by state-owned Port Infrastructure company, which the government approved on Wednesday. The lower fee will create conditions for increasing the number of passengers at Bulgarian ports and overcoming increased competition from neighbouring countries, the cabinet said in a statement. - See more at: http://www.novinite.com/articles/167920/Bulgaria+Cuts+Port+Fees+for+Cruise+Ships+to+Boost+Tourism#sthash.Ev1iMUsY.dpuf
