WISTA Hellas tackles hot topic at Annual Forum 2012!

Record attendance was noted at this year’s WISTA Hellas Annual Forum held at the Yacht Club on December 10th 2012. The reason? Besides the stellar panel, one of the hottest questions to be dared for discussion at an open forum in recent history, namely whether the Greek State and the Greek worldwide shipping sector could “pace together”?

An opportunity for the general Greek shipping community to have the State’s direct “ear” was provided by the WISTA Hellas forum, through the participation of the re-established Ministry of Shipping, Maritime Affairs and the Aegean and the attendance and participation of its honorable first Minister, Mr. Konstantinos Moussouroulis. With Mr. Manolis Vordonis moderating, the evening included presentations by EU Parliament member Mr. George Koumoutsakos by video, President and CEO of the Piraeus Port Authority Mr. George Anomeritis, President and CEO of Danaos Corporation Dr. John Coustas, President and Managing Director of G.Bros Mr. George Gourdomihalis, Managing Director of Hellespont Shipping Corporation Mr. Alex Papachristides-Bove, Managing Director, head of Greek Shipping Citibank International Plc Mr. Dimitris G. Vassilacos, and concluded with a special address by our very own Minister of Shipping, Mr. Konstantinos Moussouroulis.

This however, was not the end ofthe forum, with a heated and lively discussion following between the speakers and the Minister who remained on until the end addressing the points raised.
