Cyprus Marine Club Interviews Shipping Deputy Minister

Cyprus Marine Club Interviews Shipping Deputy Minister

After almost two years, on September 29, 2020, the Cyprus Marine Club organized its second interview with key shipping figures, at Marina Beach Bar, Limassol.

 

This time, the CMC had the honour to host the Shipping Deputy Minister to the President, Vassilios Demetriades, who shared his first impressions of 100 days in the Shipping Deputy Ministry Office. Following a mini-cabinet reshuffle in summer, the President of the Republic of Cyprus officially appointed Vassilios Demetriades as the new Shipping Deputy Minister on July 10, 2020.

 

President of Cyprus Marine Club, Captain Eberhard Koch, in his opening statement, advised that he was very happy about the high number of participants at the event, as well as the positive membership development, and warmly announced the special guest of the evening.

 

At the role of the interview’s Moderator, Cyprus Marine Club nominated once again Muriel Matta, Founder and Owner of Maravilhosa, who is also a friend and an active member of the Club. Matta started her interview with a brief introduction of the Minister and shortly after, challenged him with dozen of insightful and penetrating questions. The Minister, eagerly  shared his views on the promotion and modernisation of the Cyprus Maritime Administration,  his plan for the formulation of a long-term strategy for Cyprus shipping with a vision and concrete objectives for the next two decades, the negative impact of COVID on the Cypriot economy and for the shipping sector, the  difficulties in crew changes due to the COVID-19 travel restrictions,  boosting Maritime education, prospects for women in the Maritime industry, the  green transformation of the sector (global and regional measures such as the inclusion of shipping to the EU ETS) and promoting a healthy lifestyle. Demetriades also announced his idea, RUNNING FOR SEAFARERS; the invisible heroes of shipping, which would take place during the Cyprus Maritime event in October 2021.

 

The Minister discussed with Matta and the members the digitalization of SDM which he deems feasible in a year’s time. Demetriades also announced ideas for creating a stronger platform/channel of communication between Government and Cyprus shipowners, who could serve the Ministry as advisors and contribute their vast experience in taking up challenges facing the industry.

 

Last but not least, The Minister disclosed to members his hobbies – Running and DJing – and shared his story around his nickname “Blue Captain”, which originated in the circles of Brussels.

 

The engaging  interview ended at 19:20pm and brought further fascinating conversations among an enthusiastic audience, who explored interesting topics with Demetriades and continued sharing their thoughts during the cocktail and rich buffet that followed and lasted until very late evening.

 

The CMC Interview at Marina Beach Bar attracted around 100 people which is a great result, considering many people’s dilemma of social distancing due to Covid Pandemic. The CMC expressed their appreciation to PNS Management & Team, as well as all guests for complying with all COVID 19-regulations and taking precautions throughout the event.
