Dockers in Cyprus's second city of Limassol went on strike Monday in protest at government privatization plans, effectively shutting down the island's largest port.The plans are part of a raft of reforms that the government pledged to carry out in return for a 10-billion-euro ($13 billion) bailout by international creditors.The container terminal and multi-purpose terminal are both expected to be awarded for 25-30 years with a right to exploit and commercially develop.The concession for marine services is expected to be for 10-20 years with a right to operate in the waters at the port and for commercial development of marine services.
