Danish Ambassador opens seminar on Shipbuilding Innovation.

The seminar was organised in cooperation between China Association of the National Shipbuilding Industry (CANSI) and Odense Maritime Technology Ltd (OMT). The two organisations invited representatives from both countries to discuss the future cooperation, and how China and Denmark can benefit the most from each other.

Danish Ambassador Friis Arne Petersen opened the China-Denmark Seminar on Shipbuilding Innovation. China and Denmark share the ambition of keeping the maritime sector in a global leadership position, and the seminar focused on the advantage of sharing expertise between the two countries.

In his speech, Ambassador Friis Arne Petersen, underlined the importance of thinking green:

“Global demand for green solutions is increasing. I think both our countries can unleash the potential by working together to build cleaner and more energy efficient ships. The ability to deliver sustainable solutions will determine the winners and, losers of tomorrow.”

China and Denmark have different advantages in the industry. China is one of the world’s largest shipbuilding nations, and Danish suppliers to the maritime industry are world leaders in their field. The seminar was a breeding ground for continued dialogue, more trade and increased cooperation for mutual benefit.
