Mr. Mitsotakis began his address by emphasizing the critical role that Greek shipping plays not only in the Greek economy but also with respect to competitive position of the EU in the global shipping environment and referred to the need to leverage that position for Greece in the future. Mr. Mitsotakis updated guests with initiatives being worked on by the opposition party in anticipation of a change in government in the future related to promoting growth through investment and also stressed that stronger training and education programs for seafarers would assist in combating unemployment especially with the youth.

When we say a full house, we mean a full house!
