Cyprus Shipping Chamber 26th AGM

On Friday, 3 April 2015, the Cyprus Shipping Chamber held its 26th Annual General Meeting at the “Four Seasons” Hotel, in Limassol. The Chamber’s AGM was attended by State and Government dignitaries, Political Party representatives, Members of the House of Representatives, Diplomats, representatives of Professional Organisations and Members of the Chamber.

Addresses at the Meeting were given by H.E. the President of the Republic of Cyprus, Mr. Nicos Anastasiades and the President of the Cyprus Shipping Chamber, Capt. Eugen Adami.

In his address, the President of the Republic, Mr. Nicos Anastasiades, praised and congratulated the Cyprus Shipping Chamber for its continuous contribution and active involvement in the further development of Cyprus Shipping. He also described Shipping, as one of the main sectors towards the full recovery of the Cyprus Economy and as a catalyst for new economic growth. President Anastasiades also referred to a “Study for the Future of Cyprus Shipping”, which was initiated by the Ministry of Transport, and stated, that, based on its findings, the prospects for further development of Cyprus Shipping is both tangible and viable. He therefore, stated that, with this positive development, Cyprus Shipping, for which the State feels proud of, will be able to continue its substantial socioeconomic contribution.

The President of the Chamber, Capt. Eugen Adami, stressed that, with the introduction of specific additional measures related to the lifting of the Turkish Embargo on Cyprus ships, the creation of an “Institute of the Sea” and the upgrade of the Maritime Administration, Cyprus can develop successfully a “Sustainable Shipping Model”. In this respect, he appealed to all Political Parties to give serious consideration to the findings of the Study and urged them to approve the relevant Bill pending in Parliament for the creation of an “Under-Secretary for Shipping” position, which, in combination with the formation of a right State Shipping Policy, will give the necessary impetus for further growth and enhancement of this important for the Economy sector.

At the meeting, a presentation was also given by Mr. Andreas Chrysostomou, Acting Director of the Department of Merchant Shipping (DMS), who has been nominated by the Cyprus Government and is one of the main candidates for the position of Secretary General at the International Maritime Organisation (IMO).  

During the Meeting, elections were also held for the new Board of Directors of the Chamber for the period 2015-2017.
