Capt. Antonio M. Padrón y Santiago, “IMO Maritime Ambassador” and Maritime Authority of Tenerife, received the visit of Capt. Mircea Sarbu, Harbour Master and Naval Authority of the Port of Galati (Romania).
Galaţi is a city located in eastern Romania, the capital of the district with more than 300,000 inhabitants, being the seventh largest city in Romania.
The city has the largest iron and steel plant in Romania. There is also the largest shipyard in the country, benefiting from the good access of Galati to the black sea via the Danube and to the short distance between its facilities and Mittal plant.
The city developed quickly as a major commercial center, being currently the largest Romanian port.
