The “Maritime Cyprus” Conference has been established as a biennial event in Cyprus and it is organized by the Ministry of Communications and Works and the Department of Merchant Shipping in cooperation with the Cyprus Shipping Chamber and the Cyprus Union of Shipowners. The success of this Conference is attributed, to a large extent, to the high calibre of the speakers and the large number of shipping executives attending the Conference from around the globe. The Maritime Cyprus Conference has grown into one of the world’s most significant shipping conferences. Its status now gives it a prominent position in the calendar of many shipping executives in the industry, including, owners, managers, and delegates from other shipping organisations.

The main theme of the “Maritime Cyprus 2013” Conference, which is the 13th, since it was first established in 1989, is “Shipping Today”. As the theme suggests the Conference will be focused on the crucial matters concerning the international shipping industry today.

The conference will be officially opened by H.E. the President of the Republic of Cyprus Mr. Nicos Anastasiades. Distinguished guests such as, the Secretary-General of the International Maritime Organization, Representatives of the European Commission and other personalities of the International Shipping scene will address the conference.

The main aim of the “Maritime Cyprus” Conference is to operate as a forum where important and current issues relating to international shipping are presented by distinguished speakers and subsequently discussed by the international shipping community, thereby helping to formulate sound and well balanced decisions and policies on crucial shipping issues.
