(ANSAmed) - NAPLES, MARCH 15 - The El Djazair II ferry has arrived at the Valencia port, inaugurating a new route between the Spanish port and that of Algeria's Mostaganem.

Both passenger and vehicles will be transported on the ferry, which will run through the summer season until September. Valencia port authority chief Francesc Sanchez said that the importance of the route lay in the fact that ''southern Mediterranean countries, and especially Algeria, are strategic destinations due to both their large volumes of traffic and future potential''. ''The route,'' director general for Valencia transportation Carlos Domingo said, '' will foster an increase in commercial traffic and economic and cultural exchange between the two countries, enabling further economic development.'' Taking part in the ceremony of the first docking was also Temmar Abdelwahid, governor of the Algerian region Wilaya, who underscored the Algerian region's desire to diversify and increase relations with the Valencia region, including through cooperation. The new line of the National Company for Maritime Transport of Passengers (ENTMV) will run through September, and 17 stops in Valencia have been scheduled (once a week in July and August). The route, concluded the statement issued by the Valencia port authority, will lead to an increase in cargo traffic with Algeria - which has already in recent years grown significantly, to the point of becoming the main trade partner of the Valencia port.
