11th Annual Capital Link Greek Shipping Forum
Capital Link’s 11th Annual Greek Shipping Forum took place on Thursday, February 20, 2020 at the Hilton Athens Hotel in Athens, Greece.
The Forum was organized in cooperation with the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq.
Greek shipping remains important to the maritime economy, constituting approximately 20 percent of the world’s shipping fleet. In spite of the volatile markets and economic downturn, Greek shipping professionals have consistently adapted to changing conditions, seeking out growth and opportunity rather than yielding to their circumstances.
The event focused on three main areas:
• The current trends and outlook of the global economy and the main commodity, energy and shipping markets.
• The critical challenges the industry faces today related to geopolitical and regulatory developments, such as compliance with low sulfur, decarbonization, and the transformational impact of technology.
• Maritime Finance: the core subject with focus on bank finance, capital markets, Chinese leasing, alternative funding mechanisms and private equity.
