Minister on new maritime visit to Asia

The Danish Minister of Business and Growth, Ole Sohn, will travel to China and Singapore in a few weeks alongside representatives from shipping companies, suppliers and the Danish ports. The travel takes place just a few months after the Minister signed several agreements with South Korea on cooperation and development of quality shipping.

Shortly before a new growth strategy for Danish shipping and the entire maritime industry which will influence the maritime sector in Denmark for years to come will be put into words, the Danish Minister of Business and Growth, Ole Sohn, will once again travel to Asia in the near future. According to the Ministry, the programme for the Ole Sohn visit in China and Singapore from 26 August to 1 September is still not in place but the meetings will have a strong focus on maritime issues.

The Danish Shipowners’ Association, Danish Maritime and Danish Ports will take part in the trip at a time in which the Danish Government’s “Maritime Growth Team” is putting the final touches on a long list of recommendations to the government on growth and possibilities for the Danish maritime industry. Singapore, where the Minister is to travel, has long been a role model for at lot of countries and the small Asian state has established itself as the world’s leading shipping centre over a period of approximately 10 years.
