Denmark wants to regain Top 5 on gross tonnage

The Danish Shipowners' Association has launched a new three-year strategy. A key element is to reconquer a position among Top 5 in terms of gross tonnage. Denmark has slided down and is now ranking No 8 globally.

Since the Danish government's growth plan was presented two year ago things have gone the wrong way for one of the cornerstones of Denmark's international role as a great maritime nation: When the growth plan was launched, only three nations in the world had more registered gross tonnage than Denmark. Since then, however, Denmark has dropped to 8th place, and the lower ranking results in less influence in terms of global decision making, it is argued.

As such, one of the clear goals in the new three-year strategy launched by the Danish Shipowners' Association's Director General, Anne H. Steffensen is that Denmark must return to the global Top 5 on registered gross tonnage.
