Greek Shipping is widely considered to be the largest pillar of Greece’s trade balance. At all levels, the shipping industry is a highly complex area. Greece is among the strongest and most important maritime states in the world, which, together with its merchant shipping and tourism, are the pillars of the national economy, as the Greek-owned fleet has for many years held the leading position in the world, raising the country’s profile internationally.
The more than 60,000 merchant ships of the world shipping industry transport 99.6% of goods safely to their destination at a lower cost. This kind of transportation via merchant ships is the most efficient, economical and environmentally friendly means of transport still available to mankind.
The shipping economy includes a multitude of shipping activities such as ship ownership, ship management, shipping insurance, shipping credit, chartering, ship supply, ship building and repair, merchant shipping, ship brokerage, ship agency, brokerage and chartering etc.
The shipbuilding industry in particular (shipyards and ship repair facilities), as is the case with other industrial enterprises, is included in the Industrial Economy and Industrial Policy and, at the same time, in Maritime Policy.
Furthermore, shipping companies can play an important role in filling the investment gap in the Greek economy through their investments in the Greek economy in sectors related to shipping (such as shipyards) or outside of it.
