“Maritime Cyprus” Conference is a bi-annual international shipping conference, held since 1989. Its main objective was to promote Cyprus as a comprehensive, competitive and modern shipping center and it operates as a forum where important and current issues relating to international shipping are debated by distinguished panelists and subsequently discussed by the international shipping community, thereby helping to formulate sound and well balanced decisions and policies on crucial shipping issues. The Conference also offers the opportunity to the participants to become familiar with the strong maritime tradition of Cyprus and its Shipping Industry that was built over the years.
