Asians set to take the lead at Posidonia 2010

Asians set to take the lead at Posidonia 2010

Athens: The organisers of this year's Posidonia taking place June 7-11 at the Hellenikon Exhibition Centre expect a record Asian contingent to take attendance to a new height, with a sold-out floor space of more than 30,000 square metres and nearly 1,800 exhibitors from 86 countries. They point to a recent Euro 750m spate of new ship building orders by Greek shipowners and the findings of an international report which indicates that market confidence in the global freight market is at a 15-month high, as "a double boost (that) signals a cause for optimism for the Greek economy." An estimated Euro 50m will be generated by the 10,000 international visitors who will attend what is described as the world's most influential shipping event.  [23/04/10]
