HEC in Malta

21 August 2013

On May 21-22, 2013 Malta hosted a conference in honor of European Maritime Day, which is celebrated annually on May 20. The conference took place in Valletta under the auspices of the European Union (Marine Division) and the relevant Ministries of Malta.
HEC was present with Research and Development Director Michalis Psaromichalakis and Commercial Development Director Christos Deyiannis.
Maria Damanaki, European Commissioner for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, delivered the keynote speech. The central theme of the conference was the development of marine tourism and its impacts on the environment. Given the importance of that event and the key personalities who attended, Euroshore (International Trade Association of port reception facility providers in Europe and beyond) organized its Annual General Meeting alongside this Congress, also in Valletta.
The dominant theme of the General Assembly concerned the revision of the European 2000/59 RC Directive on the institutional framework of Reception Facilities in European ports.
Mr. Psaromichalakis and Mr. Deyiannis also represented HEC at the General Assembly.
