Background Information

The Global Shipping Markets Roundtable will take place at the conclusion of the 20th Annual Invest in Greece Forum at the Metropolitan Club in New York City.  The Forum is organized in cooperation with the New York Stock Exchange and major global investment banks and will feature government and business leaders from Greece and the US, top US investors, major global investment banks, the senior executives of the four Greek systemic banks and senior representatives from major international and Greek organizations and companies.

Greece controls over 20% of the world's total merchant fleet, making it the largest in the world. It is ranked in the top for all kinds of ships, including first for tankers and bulk carriers. Shipping is a global business and is affected by the global commodity and energy markets and does not depend on the Greek economy itself. However, shipping is a major contributor to the country’s economy through the foreign currency inflows it generates given its leading global presence. Greek shipowners who compete on a global scale have a track record as astute operators and asset traders.

ONEX Technologies, a US company, has recently made significant investments in Greece by acquiring and revitalizing the Neorion Syros Shipyards.
