<p style=The President of the Chamber, Mr. Themis Papadopoulos, referred both to the milestones of the last 35 years and to the events of the past year. Mr. Papadopoulos also stated “As always, the Cyprus Chamber of Shipping remains very active working closely with the government of Cyprus and with the relevant international organizations abroad, mainly the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) and the European Shipowners' Association (ECSA), to safeguard the interests of our members, promote our policies and contribute to the global maritime agenda. While shipping continues to be a strong pillar of the Cypriot economy, modernization and upgrading are key to maintaining its competitiveness and improving future growth prospects. The creation of a “Single Shipping Center”, the establishment of a limited liability shipping company, the introduction of a specialized financial institution for the shipping and transport sectors, as well as continued digitization, are expected to further improve the competitiveness of both the flag and the country as a base for shipping activities. To fulfill its mission, the Cyprus Chamber of Shipping relies to a large extent on the continuous support of its member companies and the ongoing cooperation with all our partners in the public and private sector, to whom I would like to express our deepest thanks” he concluded Mr. Papadopoulos.

The Chamber honored the immediate predecessor of the President, Mr. Filippos Philis, for his very successful term as President of the Union of European Shipowners, position which for the first time was owned by a Cypriot Shipowner.

According to “K” sources, the industry is very satisfied with the actions of the KNE and the way it deals with the challenges faced by merchant shipping from global shocks. The KNE team as well as the General Manager are working tirelessly to strengthen Cyprus Shipping and further strengthen it. The same goes for Mr. Thomas Kazakos, who is one of the leading figures in Cypriot shipping, advocating the supremacy of the Cypriot Flag from whatever platform he has.
