Further information:

The purpose of the preliminary exchanges is to enlighten the Region on issues related to the land development, operation, management and business development of a site such as the port, and to enable it to identify the contours of both the envisaged public service concession and the capacities of the economic operators that may be interested in the project.

The results of these exchanges may be used by the Region, subject to this not distorting competition or leading to a violation of the principles of freedom of access to public procurement, equal treatment of Candidates and transparency of procedures.
