New maritime agreement with Japan
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.
