Christodoulos G. Vassiliades Law Firm’s Representatives, Sanela Trzin and Stelios Havatzias attended the East Med Maritime Conference which took place between 19th and 20th of June in Beirut, Lebanon.
East Mediterranean is one of the busiest commercial shipping hubs around the world, where the strategic position of this part of Mediterranean Sea grants it the commercial power as well as the continuous investments in shipping and ports. In addition, recent oil and gas infrastructures are all underway to maintain a sustainable intersecting cluster that is approached by major shipping and offshore companies worldwide.
Investing heavily in such infrastructure that improves shipping and trade linking both domestic and international markets is a main strategic plan for the majority of East Med Region Governments, and thus the private sector has a big role to turn those ambitious plans into current daily projects.
East Mediterranean is a vital linking node that is not only serving the Middle East and North Africa Region but also the world economy in addition to the worldwide Silk Road project, which emphasizes past, present, and future expansion plans in ports, container terminals, shipyards, maritime training institutes, and maritime and offshore service facilities.
East Med Maritime Conference EMMC, is the perfect platform that discussed the latest developments in the shipping, maritime, and offshore industries, and provided a premier interdisciplinary forum to the maritime training professionals and community to present the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, present/future challenges and recommended solutions.
