The opening Keynote Address was given by the Minister of Transport, Communications and Works, Marios Demetriades.

He added that Merchant shipping is a business sector which represents an invaluable asset for Cyprus and consequently is placed on the top of the Ministry’s priority list. The Minister expressed the view that Cyprus has the potential to be developed into an important Energy Center in the Mediterranean and the sustainable growth of Cyprus Shipping is one of the priorities of the Cyprus Government.  Furthermore, Demetriades stated that the Ministry of Transport will do its utmost to enhance the competitiveness of Cyprus flag and Cyprus maritime cluster, in order to consolidate and further develop Cyprus role in world shipping as well as to provide adequate conditions for a sustainable growth of the shipping sector in Cyprus.
