Greek shipping’s international standing means it has the opportunity to attract young people to the sector to meet the large problem of unemployment, Shipping & Island Policy Minister Giannis Plakiotakis told the 7th annual Hellenic Entrepreneurs Association (EENE) Economic Forum on Wednesday.

In this context, Plakiotakis added that public maritime education in Greece is being reformed and a new institutional framework will be presented in 2022. Addressing himself to young people, he said that living conditions were vastly improved over the past.

The minister also said that seagoing shipping is still producing profit during the last two years, unlike coastal shipping that has registered over 150 million euros’ worth of losses.

He also revealed that during the last two years the ministry has been working on attracting more ships to the Greek registry and digitizing shipping overall.
