The appointment of the new EU Commissioners means that the Danish Shipowners' Association will have to start getting to know the new commissioners and find the best way to bring the maritime agenda onto the floor.

"Our job now is to push our cases onto the agenda for the new commissioners. They will have to go through a hearing in the Parliament, where we've already asked several parliamentarians to direct relevant shipping questions at the commissioners. And our job also consists of meeting with the commissioners' staffs - which could be the same people as before or a team of completely new employees - and then setting up meetings with the commissioners. Our experiences is that it easily takes a few months before the commissioners start to really deal with the cases," Simon Bergulf, head of the Danish Shipowners' Association's office in Brussels, tells ShippingWatch.
