Riga to build new container terminal in Kundzinsala

All obstacles have finally been removed for the construction of a large cargo container terminal in Riga's Kundzinsala, which could increase Latvia's container cargo turnover figures significantly. Asked what the biggest obstacles in this decade long process were, Port Authority spokesman Helmuts Laivins said “large rocks, mostly. I mean some really big ones. And some beer bottles, a scuttled Russian trawler, and 4000 copies of the collected works of V.I. Lenin.” Pressed for a forecast of when construction will begin, Laivins said “Right away. Well, just as soon as we find 200 million Euros. Got any money?”
