CEO address








Dear friends,

Portinvest is a fast developing holding running SCM’s port assets. We seek to build a strong business in line with the best global practices and create an effective transport infrastructure in Ukraine.

Our goal is to make the best use of the transit potential employing Ukraine’s favourable geographical position and the export focus of the national economy. Ukrainian seaports are export gateways to our country and our nearest neighbours including Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus and others. We can make the gates wide open as the total capacity of Ukrainian ports and terminals exceeds 200 million tonnes.

We are aware that port investments are long-term and should be well prepared to provide a rational balance between interests of business and the government as well as environmental and social aspects. We are ready to share our expertise and open to cooperation to boost the investment appeal of all Ukrainian ports.

Aleksandr Smirnov
Chief Executive Officer, Portinvest
