Shipping should be part of Internal Market
The EU Internal Market is a great success and a clear advantage for the Danes, whose wealth according to a new study, is 5 percent higher than it would have been without the Internal Market. But the Internal Market does not include shipping and this should be rectified. The Danish Shipowners' Association now takes action.
"The new figures show that the internal market is obviously a good idea for Denmark. Seen from shipping's point of view, it annoys me that we - despite the large Danish merchant fleet - do not exploit the full potential of the internal market. The captains must still go through a large bureaucracy, when ships sail between European ports. The aim must be to include maritime transport as part of the internal market," says Anne H. Steffensen, Managing Director of the Danish Shipowners' Association.
