Bermuda represented at shipping conference

An island delegation is flying the Bermuda flag at a major shipping conference in Greece.

The Department of Marine Operations, with the Bermuda Business Development Agency, businesspeople and the shipping industry, are at the Posidonia International Shipping Exhibition in Athens, Greece, for the first time.

Senator Michael Fahy, the Minister of Tourism, Transport and Municipalities, said: “I believe it's important that Bermuda's business community joins with the Registrar and other officials to fly the Bermuda flag at events like these.

“It is a key strategy in building the island's shipping registry, which is a worthwhile goal of this Government.”

The biennial exhibition is one of the largest of its kind in Europe and is expected to attract nearly 20,000 delegates this year.

Attendees include ship owners, operators and managers, as well as ship builders, experts in maritime law, shipping registries, engine and equipment manufacturers for Europe and around the globe.
