Setting course for Posidonia 2010 exhibition next month

The Union of Greek Shipowners (EEE) is preparing for next month’s Posidonia 2010 exhibition with its president, Theodoros Veniamis, suggesting yesterday in a written statement that ‘the resilience so far of Greek shipping in the midst of a dire crisis justifies some optimism that Greek-flag and Greek-owned shipping will maintain the size and high quality of the fleet.’ Exceeding the level of participation of previous years, the June 7-11 show at the Helliniko Exhibition Center will feature 1,800 exhibitors from 85 countries and host more than 17,000 visitors, Veniamis said.
