Well, it is not as if they decided to put a oiltank terminal, it is just small transport at most a cargo ship a day, a little bit more than current level,ls but nothing that cannot handled. A city functions much better when it is not too specialized, when it has other choices and does not just become dead in winter and bad weather. Such developments also give it more authenticity, and it is easier for the people in there who might want to do other things. Also, the surrounding area will have easier transport and maybe even small agricultural industries might start that sell specific products and processed products outside where agricultural costs might be higher. This is also something that is feasible with the current infrastructure of Saranda, it has a fishing port, the main civilian port and a military port insde the city's range (the military at the very borders of the city, and the militasry has long decided to move out of there. .

Sure, so there we have fishing, agriculture and tourism. We can use the port only for people and agricultural goods. Seeing big ugly ships that transport oil will do Saranda more bad than good.

Well the problem is that despite I try to do all this, timewise visual information is very consuming. In order to make it easier to update threads I propose we share sources so that all of us can update constantly.

For example the information here is either from Durres Port Authority website or the Power Point presentation available in the following address:

http://www.mpptt.gov.al/dok_strateg.php

so to keep things smooth we can share the load in terms of images and information.

I am not saying that we must share sources, but people who don't have a big deal with the issue might very well do so.
