New maritime agreement with Japan

12-10-2017 14:00:00

The bond between Denmark and Japan was further strengthened on Thursday as the two maritime nations signed a new maritime cooperation agreement. The agreement focuses on greener shipping, increased digitalization and better framework conditions. Those are positive moves for Danish shipping, Danske Rederier believes.

"There are many positive moves in the deal. Overall, it is good that the Minister of Industry ensures strong alliances with other major maritime nations that can ensure the quality of shipping in the future, in relation to our environmental impact. We are pleased, among other things, that close cooperation has been established on the important enforcement of IMO's sulfur regulation by 2020, as well as creating a better framework for increased digitalization of shipping," says CEO of Danske Rederier Anne H. Steffensen.

The agreement was designed after the Minister of Industry visited Japan with a business delegation, including Danske Rederier, in the spring. The new cooperation agreement between the countries follows a strategic partnership that was concluded between Denmark and Japan in 2014, which also included the maritime area.

150 years ago, in 1857, the two nations entered a trade and maritime agreement for the first time ever, and since then, the relationship has become stronger and stronger. Danske Rederier is in favor of the new agreement, which Anne H. Steffensen believes, focuses on greater focus on quality and accountability in shipping.

Danish shipping had a turnover of 3 billion DKK in the Japanese market in 2016.
The agreement has been signed by the Danish ambassador in Japan on behalf of the Danish government.
