Greek Government must exploit the value of Greek shipping

Adonis Georgiadis, deputy minister of Development, Competitiveness and Shipping said that he is opposed to every measure that reduces the competitiveness of shipping.
In view of this philosophy he prepares a concrete piracy legislation.

Georgiadis said the legislation will be in line with respective IMO decisions.
It provides for upto six armed private guards on board a Greek-flagged ship. As its known there is a conflict between Mr. Christos Papoutsis, Minister of Citizens Protection and Mr. Georgiadis on this critical issue.
