Global shipping management company, PV Enterprises International, Inc. (PVEC), has provided an update to its shareholders & the investment community on the next phase of its business plan and enhanced corporate strategy, as follows:

"We realized people are the most profitable cargo," said Mr. Peter Villiotis, CEO of PVEC.  "We are very excited about our focus on tourism in undeveloped areas, a much larger market where my unique experience as Chief of Technical Operations for two major Cruise lines for 25 years can be effectively utilized. "

"PVEC has recognized the huge potential in specialty cruises coupled with ecotourism. This relatively new, immature and inefficient segment of this $36 billion market presents enormous potential. Furthermore implementing an ecofriendly touch to specialty cruises has many additional benefits including enhanced appeal, cost reductions and high acceptability."

"Consistent with our firm commitment to build a global integrated maritime services company, we have accomplished much this year to develop this plan. We established strategic alliances with an array of maritime companies and financing groups including agreements for charters and logistics with a Fortune 100 company; a signed agreement for purchase of a 3900 acre property in Bahamas Island to build a new ferry and cruise port destination port; and a signed agreement for the purchase of a cruise vessel, which is ready to begin our niche cruise and ferry operations."

"We have established our subsidiary, Zeus Travel, Inc., which has started sales as a booking agent and will be ready to take bookings for our cruises.  A relationship has been established with a major insurance broker to obtain the necessary insurance umbrella coverage to support our Cruise/Ferry operations as well the new Cruise Port development."

"This is a very exciting time for the company; we are working tirelessly to grow our business and become a leading player of specialty eco-tourism cruises."  Mr. Peter Villiotis, CEO of PV Enterprises concludes.
