On 13 September 2012 Danish Prime Minister H.E. Helle Thorning-Schmidt, Danish and Chinese officials, and high level representatives, including CEOs and specialists, from the Danish and Chinese maritime industry attended a Sino-Danish Maritime event in Shanghai.

Organized by Danish Maritime, Danish Export Association and Ministry of Foreign Affairs Denmark and funded by Danish Maritime Fund, the objective of the event was to discuss and share opinions on the future of Danish-Chinese maritime industry.

The speakers all shared their perspective on the short-, middle- and long-term future for shipbuilding globally. The discussion on how Denmark and China can collaborate for benefits for both countries took place.

“In Denmark we base ourselves on international regulations for the maritime industry, and we believe in high standards. I know that China is also a strong supporter of international rules and quality shipping. That is why I truly believe that continued dialogue, more trade and increased cooperation between our nations is very important to both our countries. I am certain that we will be able to make use of the opportunities before us, and work even closer together in the future for our mutual benefit,” states the Danish Prime Minister. 

Among the participating guests also included Danish Ambassador to China, Mr. Friis Arne Petersen, Danish Consul General to China, Mr. Karsten Ankjær Jensen, Chairman of Shanghai International Port Group, Mr. Chen Xuyuan, CEO of Danish Maritime, Ms. Jenny N.
