Swedish government presents plan and budget for deepening of the fairways at the Port of Gothenburg
On June 2, the Swedish Minister for Infrastructure Thomas Eneroth presented key elements of the government’s strategic infrastructure plan and budget related to the deepening of the fairways at the Port of Gothenburg.

Deeper fairways will allow the very largest vessels, both now and in the future, to call at the Port of Gothenburg fully loaded, opening up potential for more direct services and increased freight volumes between Gothenburg and the world.
