Hellas Maritime 2020

Hellas Maritime 2020
Greece remains the global leader in shipping with just over 20% of the world fleet by capacity even though the country accounts for just 0.16% of the planet’s population, and over half (54%) of capacity in the European Union, the Union of Greek Shipowners (UGS) reports in its latest annual report.

This issue of Hellas Maritime looks at how the Greek maritime cluster in Athens and Piraeus is gradually strengthening its position, with addition of greater technical and professional expertise, including that offered by class societies and flags. Piraeus has has now become a thriving port, thanks to Chinese investment, and plans to revitalise the shiprepair sector.

Meanwhile, our Island Focus is on Spetses, a favourite weekend and holiday haunt of Greek’s super-rich and yacht-owning communities but also possessing a proud maritime heritage.
