South Korea is one of the busiest markets in the world for newbuildings and offshore installations, and is therefore very interesting for the many Danish suppliers to the maritime industry. That's why the now a year-and-half old cooperation agreement concerning quality shipping and green shipping technologiy, entered by former Minister for Business and Growth Ole Sohn, is now set to come into effect for real, says CEO of the Danish Maritime Authority, Andreas Nordseth, to ShippingWatch.

"Denmark has some of the world's best green shipping technology, and we have a clear interests in establishing a strong cooperation with Korea and in combining our industries. Korea has gone through an election and restructurings, so we've waited a little, but we're going to get started this fall," he says.
