SAVE THE DATE - SHIP&FINANCE on 20 January 2020

19 Dec 2019

The shipping and financial services industries are meeting

in the Press Club, Brussels on 20 January 2020 between 14.00 – 17.00

to discuss the future opportunities and challenges regarding ship financing


ECSA is organising an event to bring together technical maritime experts and the financial services stakeholders to find practical and usable solutions for facilitating the European ambitions.

In the times ahead, the European shipping industry is facing both opportunities and challenges.

The shipping industry needs sufficient - available and affordable – financing to keep its commitment and to work towards a sustainable economy. The success of the shipping industry goes hand in hand with the success of the financial services industry. Let it be regulator or market actor, the shipping industry and the financial services industry need to join forces to get one step closer towards the common goal. 

European shipowners cooperate with the shipbuilding sector, ports, equipment manufacturers and the research community. This facilitates innovative and sustainable solutions to drive the whole maritime industry together towards a greener future in key areas such as air emissions, waste management, and the protection of marine life. The European maritime industry embraces these challenges and is committed to taking the global lead for clean shipping.
