With his participation in the Danish Maritime Forum on October 26 the Danish Minister for Business and Growth will highlight the need for greater global cooperation when meeting with maritime key leaders from around the world.
Around 90 percent of world trade is transported by sea. Therefore, initiatives to increase global trade and new technological opportunities will be high on the agenda when global leaders from all parts of the maritime industry meet at the Danish Maritime Forum on October26-27.
An important question will be how to correspond to the current unpredictability which is challenging the industry more than ever. For the first time in decades, growth in world trade is falling below global economic growth and the profound transformation of the global system of production and distribution makes it difficult to calculate credible forecasts.
The Danish Minister for Business and Growth, Troels Lund Poulsen, who will be among the keynote speakers at the Danish Maritime Forum stated, “The maritime industry plays an important role in securing a better future for us all
. It is the backbone of world trade. However, the maritime industry is facing the challenge of unpredictability, which calls for greater global cooperation, and this is exactly what we hope to achieve with the Danish Maritime Forum.”
The Danish Maritime Forum brings together key leaders from around the world and all parts of the maritime value chain. Over the course of two days, they will work together on unleashing the potential of the global maritime industry in order to increase long term economic development and human wellbeing.
