Plans have been unveiled for a new cruise terminal on Jeju Island, with capacity for 4.7 million visitors annually. It will be completed by a 820,000 m2 leisure and tourism complex. The approach has been adopted in the country’s main ports, for example in Busan where a new terminal was opened in September 2018 and new cultural amenities are planned.
Plans to redevelop the Tangier port zone have been costed at 7 billion dirhams, including 2.5 billion for the port aspect. Several of the major developments have already been completed, including the fishing port, marina, port mosque, the extension to the cruise docks and the modernisation of the passenger terminal. The ITT, launched by SAPT, is aimed at establishing a roadmap and an economic model.
In August, the government of the Bahamas and Global Ports Holding signed an agreement to develop a new cruise terminal and integrate it into the centre of the city. A park, amphitheatre, museum, shops and restaurants are also planned.
