Thursday, 18 September 2014

The global maritime sector will be gathering in Copenhagen to discuss the shipping industry of the future during Danish Maritime Days. The Danish Maritime Authority is an active participant during the entire week and invites you to the workshop "Maritime Consensus" on 7 October. Here, electronic solutions will be in focus when the workshop poses the question: If you could spend 10 million dollars on electronic solutions aimed at reducing the administrative burdens imposed on the maritime sector - how would you spend them?
