Support for strong maritime growth plan

Support for strong maritime growth plan

A broad majority in the Dansish parliament seems prepared to support a strong maritime growth plan.
It is clear in a survey, which the Danish Shipowners' Association made, prior to its annual meeting in Nyborg on Friday.

There is no shortage of support and good intentions regarding a maritime growth plan among the majority of parliamentary parties. The government has established a growth team to come up with its recommendations in the spring, whereafter Industry Minister Brian Mikkelsen (K) is expected to come up with a proposal in this area.
And the positive feedback is practically lined up, according to the survey.

"We will follow the proposals from the growth team closely as the ambition is clear: Maritime transport will continue to be a growth industry for the benefit of all of Denmark. There are overlapping interests of Danish shipping and Venstre, when we have to take care of a Danish position of strength - and that requires action. Therefore, I expect ambitions for the growth team's suggestions, so the careful preparation can be translated into something that makes a difference for the entire industry - and therefore for all of us," says Torsten Schack Petersen from Venstre.

The former SR government submitted a growth plan for the Blue Denmark in 2012 in continuation of recommend entries from a growth team. And it worked, says Socialdemokratiet.

"I therefore expect ambitious announcements from this growth team. Danish shipping is our largest export industry, which supplies much of the Danish society – something we can hopefully create even better opportunities for on the wave of the forthcoming recommendations," says Thomas Jensen from the Socialdemokratiet.

Radikale Venstre are prepared:
"Shipping is a growth industry, and I expect good ideas on how we can continue the development, while ensuring respect for the environment and the climate. A place to focus on is expanding the DIS system for our offshore wind ships so we can connect new growth with the need for a green transition," said Ida Auken, Radikale Venstre's spokesman.

Two other parties also show support - and so will the Dansk Folkeparti, who want an extension of the DIS system and enhanced education efforts.

There are pre-set pricetags on a number of these initiatives. An estimated extension of the DIS system will cost about 110 million kroner annually if it includes assemblers.

But where the money for the many initiatives will come from remains unclear.
