Description

China Merchants Group plans to build a new outer seaport on the existing Klaipeda port in Lithuania. The project was first proposed in 2009, but a lack of funding prevented its realization. The port of Klaipeda is a major seaport in Lithuania and could serve as a gateway between the Baltic Sea and Lithuania's landlocked neighbor, Belarus, where China is investing large funds under its Belt and Road Initiative.
