European Shipping Week success

09 Mar 2017

European Shipping Week (ESW) saw leaders of the shipping industry and regulators from the European Union discuss issues of mutual concern.

There were officially 30 high level events supported by a
number of meetings between industry and government. Alongside this over 350
delegates and guests attended the official EWS17 Conference and Gala Dinner in
Brussels at the beginning of March.

“European Shipping Week addresses key issues currently
facing European and Global shipping: investment, innovation, decarbonisation
and the digitalisation of the maritime sector” said Violeta Bulc, the European transport
commissioner.

He added: “Meeting the people that work in maritime
transport – experiencing their knowledge and passion – is what strikes me most
during ESW. I want to congratulate the European Community Shipowners’ Associations
(ECSA) and all other associations who have contributed to this programme."

The European shipping industry, represented by the members
of the ESW Steering Group and WSC – used ESW to issue a joint statement
welcoming the European Commission’s mid-term review of the EU Maritime
Transport Strategy 2009-2018.
