Swedish maritime action plan under fire

The Swedish Government’s action plan for the Swedish maritime industry published yesterday does not deal with the biggest problem in the industry, the competitiveness, Swedish shipowners think. René Taudal Poulsen, Associate Professor at Copenhagen Business School, has his doubts concerning a kick-start of Swedish shipping.

The biggest challenge for Swedish shipping is its competitiveness. And the Swedish Government has failed to take the competitiveness into concrete consideration in the recently launched action plan for Swedish shipping, Christer Schoug, Director General of the Swedish Shipowners’ Association, thinks.

“Following the presentation of the action plan, we have to state that the action plan far from fulfil our wishes. We all admire Denmark and we have hoped to be blessed with something which was just as good, but it was not to be,” he tells ShippingWatch.
